  • 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.

About Stamp

Next time you step up to the bank machine, you may be able to withdraw more than cash. In April, postage stamp will be available from selected automated teller machines (ATMs) for the first time in Canada. Canada Post and Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC) are teaming up to offer self-adhesive, domestic-rate stamps. The stamps will be available at 22 CIBC ATMs during the week of April 20 in south-central Ontario - non-branch locations - as part of a one-year trial. CIBC customers will be able to purchase stamps while they make their withdrawals, deposits and bill payments, any time, night or day. And no cash is required; purchases will be direct debited from their CIBC accounts. Stamps are dispensed in an-18 stamp sheet the size and thickness of a banknote which can be folded over into a handy booklet. Their self-adhesive backing eliminates the need to lick or tear stamps before applying them to envelopes.

Created by Gottschalk + Ash International, the stamp design was printed with a gravure of a stylized maple leaf, and includes micro-lettering as a security feature. In addition, the stamp is not tagged. Its Official First Day Cover will be cancelled in Ottawa. In addition to being available through selected ATMs, stamp sheets may be purchased from the National Philatelic Centre starting April 14.
