* 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.
In the words of the Constitution Act of 1982, "The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees the rights and freedoms set out in it subject only to such reasonable limits prescribed by law as can be demonstrably justified in a free and democratic society." The Charter protects such fundamental freedoms as freedom of conscience, religion, thought, belief, opinion, expression, peaceful assembly and association. It also safeguards democratic, legal, equality, mobility, language and educational rights. The Charter thus contains rights which evolved as part of Western Civilization over many centuries and other rights specifically tailored to Canada's unique circumstances. This stamp celebrated the fifth anniversary of the Charter. The design of this stamp, by Ralph Tibbles of Toronto, illustrates Canada's highly colourful coat of arms. The background, dark blue with thin red stripes, gives an impression of dignity and nobility which is particularly well suited to the theme.
