* 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

To strengthen its authority in the gold-rush zone, the federal government created the Yukon Territory in 1898. Seven years later the federal government set up the Provinces of Saskatchewan and Alberta. This encouraged Manitoba to request some federally controlled territory to its north. Disputes over subsidies and schools delayed this expansion until 1912, when Manitoba gained an extra 178,100 square miles. At the same time, Ontario gained 140,000 square miles and Quebec 350,000 square miles. These four stamps are the work of graphic designer Raymond Bellemare of Montreal, using a colour scheme based on the rainbow, symbol of hope and joy. The pane layout, in chronological progression, emphasizes the growth and organization of Canada from a largely undeveloped and unmapped territory to a colourful and vibrant nation.


Designed by Raymond Bellemare.
