* Notes about these prices:
  • They are currently in beta mode, meaning that they should not be relied upon yet as a source of truth and could change frequently. Please notify PSG if you come across values that do not make sense.
  • They are not based on catalogue values but on current dealer and auction listings. The reason for this is that catalogues tend to over-value stamps.
  • They are average prices and might not be fully accurate. The actual value of your stamp may be slightly above or below the listed value, depending on the overall condition of your stamp.

About Stamp

Two portraits of Queen Victoria 1837 and 1867. The portrait on the left is from a painting by Alfred Edward Chalon, R. A., and portrays Her Majesty on the occasion of the prorogation of Parliament on 17th July, 1837. This is the same portrait reproduced on the 12-pence Canadian stamp of 1851... Between the portraits on the stamps, the initials V.R.I. signify Victoria, Queen and Empress, and below are dates 1837 and 1897, the years of the Queen's accession and her Diamond Jubilee.


Based on a painting by Alfred Edward Chalon. Designed by Peleg Franklin Brownell.

Original Artwork

Alfred Edward Chalon, "Queen Victoria", 1837
