First Gold Souvenir Stamp Sheet & Lucky Loonie Set

 Canada Strikes Gold!

 

Canadians were treated with the experience of a lifetime when the iconic Maple Leaf was hoisted above the Olympic podium. As Canada’s first-ever gold medal victory on Canadian soil, this was history in the making—a binding moment of honour and pride that will live on for years to come. And like all our country’s defining moments, Canada Post wanted to put its stamp on it. So they embarked on a very special project to honour this historic win—a project that was shrouded in absolute secrecy until the coveted gold medal was in Canadian hands.

 The stamp, designed by Naomi Broudo and Violet Finvers of the Vancouver-based firm, Tandem Design, showcases a Vancouver 2010 Olympic gold medal. Gold maple leaves scattered around the booklet and souvenir sheet are a special tribute to this Canadian celebration, and a creative play on the subject of the stamp.

 

Canada Post is thrilled to have the opportunity to issue this remarkable commemorative.
