Beyond history-themed pictorials and portraits, CanadaÕs philatelic history can also provide a sense of the nationÕs mindset at a key moment in time. Such is the case with this uniquely shaped reproduction of a Canadian postage stamp issued in 1942, when a proud nation had dedicated its resources to support the Allied effort in the Second World War.

Engraved on the stamp-shaped reverse is a detailed reproduction of a Canadian special delivery stamp issued on July 1, 1942, to highlight CanadaÕs involvement in the Allied cause during the Second World War. The 10-cent denomination stamp was designed by Herman Herbert Schwartz and originally engraved by Silas Robert Allen, as evidenced by the horizontal lines that are indicative of traditional intaglio printing or line engraving. The pictorial collage features the former Arms of Canada within a shield atop a bough of maple leaves, and flanked by four flags that represent CanadaÕs different military contributions. An application of modern colour mimics the deep bright green colour of the original issue, which had an inscribed denomination of Ò10 CENTSÓ. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

With serrated edges that mimic a postal stampÕs perforations, this fine silver coin is a numismatic celebration of CanadaÕs postal and philatelic history, with a special focus on early 20th century stamp designs.
