British Columbia Stamps by Denomination

British Pound Sterling / Pence / Penny

The first Canadian postage stamps were issued using the British Pound Sterling currency. Canada issued stamps under this currency from 1851 to 1857.

Overprint / Surcharge

Occasionally, the Canadian Postal Administration would overprint a new monetary value over stamps that were already printed. The result are these surcharged stamps.

Cents / Dollars
