About Stamp

The decorative and symbolic use of the maple leaves on the Diamond Jubilee commemorative and the regular issues of 1897 met with instant public approval. But the designers of the Maple Leaves issue failed to give sufficient prominence to the denominations in words rather than figures. As a result, the public was not able to distinguish the face values quickly. The Post Office Department accordingly modified the design and prepared a new issue of postage stamps. Portrait of Her Majesty Queen Victoria, from a photograph by Messrs. W. & D. Downey, London, England, and taken in 1897 for the occasion of her Diamond Jubilee.
