I was born on the west coast of Canada and have lived throughout BC and Alberta. Although I haven’t made it to all our provinces and territories, I’m getting close! Some things that I love the most about Canada are our friendly people – an accepting and welcoming population who are lucky enough to have four distinct seasons and a breathtaking landscape from sea to sea to sea.
Canada published its first stamp – the Three penny beaver in April of 1851. Also in that year came our most valuable stamp, the 12d Black Queen Elizabeth. This stamp has sold in the neighborhood of $300,000 (wow!). My collection of Canadian stamps is far from complete but it is pretty good. Once I get closer to actually making the “need to collect” list I will share it with you. For now, here are a few photos.
