Canada Post unveils first King Charles stamp
Canada has a new King, so that means we get a fresh new stamp featuring the monarch.
On Saturday, Canada Post unveiled its first-ever stamp featuring King Charles III.
"The stamp continues Canada Post's long-standing tradition of issuing definitive stamps depicting the Canadian sovereign, dating back more than 170 years," said Canada Post in a release.
Designed by Montreal studio Paprika, the stamp features a portrait snapped by photographer Alan Shawcross when the King was The Prince of Wales.
The stamps come in a booklet of 10 with a cover featuring a photo of His Majesty taken when he was in Ottawa in 2022.
They're called "definitive" stamps, which means they're for general use and will be reprinted, so they're not commemorative/limited quantity stamps.
The stamps announcements came on the same day that the Royal Canadian Mint announced King Charles would replace his mother on Canadian coins and the $20 bill.
You can get some of your own King Charles stamps from Canada Post to send your grandma a card starting on Monday, May 8.
