In 1908, the Post Office Department of Canada commemorated the 300th anniversary of the founding of Quebec City with a special issue: the Tercentenary Series of Postal Stamps. The Royal Canadian Mint's tribute to Canada's postal heritage continues with a reproduction of the 20-cent stamp from that series, complete with colour and "perforated" edges.

Engraved on the stamp-shaped reverse is a detailed reproduction of a Canadian postage stamp issued on July 16, 1908, to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the founding of Quebec City by French explorer and navigator, Samuel de Champlain. The stamp was titled "ARRIVÉE DE CARTIER – QUÉBEC 1535" (Arrival of Cartier – Quebec 1535), as inscribed beneath the image. It was designed by José Antonio Machado and originally engraved by Elie Timothée Loizeaux, as evidenced by the horizontal lines that are indicative of traditional intaglio printing or line engraving. The image depicts the arrival of Champlain's predecessor, French explorer Jacques Cartier, in the St. Lawrence River near the Iroquoian village of Stadacona. An application of modern colour mimics the brown colour of the original issue, while the double dates "1608" and "1908" and the words "IIIE CENTENAIRE DE QUÉBEC" reflect the city's tercentenary. Like the 1908 stamp, the reverse also includes ornamental flourishes and the words "CANADA POSTAGE" atop the framed image, while the stamp's original denomination is represented by the number "20". The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Features:

  • Second in a series of stamp-shaped coins. With serrated edges that mimic a postal stamp's perforations, this fine silver coin is a numismatic celebration of Canada's postal and philatelic history, with a special focus on early 20th century stamp designs.
  • The classic look of a bygone era. This coin travels back in time to 1908, to reproduce a stamp issued for the 300th anniversary of the founding of Quebec City.
  • Faithful reproduction. The engraved reproduction of the 1908 stamp is just as detailed as the original — complete with horizontal lines that were the product of intaglio printing, or line engraving, one of the oldest methods of stamp production.
  • Vintage colours. The addition of colour over engraving completes this reproduction of the original brown-coloured stamp.
  • Forever preserved in 99.99% pure silver, this collectible is the perfect gift for philatelists and numismatists alike.
