From Far and Wide returns: nine more stamps celebrating coast-to-coast-to-coast splendor


This series continues to invite Canadians to seek out this country's most picturesque places.

OTTAWA, Jan. 14, 2019 /CNW/ - Canada Post has issued the second set of stamps in the multiyear From Far and Wide series ? its name inspired by a line in the lyrics of "O Canada" ? that promises to take Canadians on an armchair journey to some of the most breathtaking and memorable must-see locations.

The nine definitive stamps, smaller stamps used mainly for mailing, cover off the new 2019 postal rates with five domestic-rate Permanenttm stamps, as well as stamps bearing U.S., International and Oversized rates, plus the single-purchase $1.05 rate. The 2019 edition of the stamp series offers fascinating views of the following destinations:

The Permanent domestic stamps are available in booklets of 10 (two of each image) and coils of 100, while the U.S.-rate, Oversized-rate and International-rate denominations are available in booklets of six and coils of 50. The issue also includes a souvenir sheet and several other formats for collectors, as well as an Official First Day Cover, cancelled in Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia, the location featured on one of the Permanent stamps. The issue was designed by Stéphane Huot of Montréal and printed by the Lowe-Martin Group.
