Canada’s gold goes postal

Canada's gold fever will continue to spread across the country in the form of a postage stamp.

After a "top secret" development process, on Monday Canada Post unveiled a special stamp to celebrate the first Olympic gold medal of the Vancouver games. Alexandre Bilodeau's men's moguls victory on Sunday brought the host country its first gold on Canadian soil, despite having hosted the games twice before – in Montreal in 1976 and in Calgary in 1988.

The stamps are being sold as a souvenir sheet of two stamps or a book of 10. Canada Post is also selling souvenir coins.
