About Stamp

This stamp is the second in Canada's new regular issue series. The design was executed by Mr. Ernst Roch of Montreal, an internationally known artist and designer. The portrait of Her Majesty is executed in a simple almost classic style, giving a cameo appearance to the stamp. In the upper left corner of the stamp is a symbol to represent one to the primary sectors of Canadian economy. The symbol on the one-cent stamp is three crystals, representing Canada's mining industry. Canada has long been regarded as a great natural reservoir of mineral wealth, much of which has still to be developed. The last few years have seen tremendous expansion of mining in Canada. Long a world leader in the production of nickel and irons ores, Canada is also a leading producer of many other minirals, including gold and uranium. Presently the most important non-metallic mineral being mined in Canada is asbestos.


Designed by Ernst Roch. Portrait engraved by Yves Baril. Lettering and symbol engraved by Donald J. Mitchell.
