Queen Elizabeth II stamp by Canada

In 1953, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II became the first of Canada's sovereigns to be separately proclaimed as Queen of Canada. This definitive stamp issue by Canada post coincides with 60 years since the Royal Style and Titles Act passed by the Canadian government established the Royal Style and Titles for Canada as "Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God of the United Kingdom, Canada and Her other Realms and Territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith."

The stamp issue focuses on Her Majesty's role as Queen of Canada and incorporates a close-cropped photograph taken during the 2010 Royal Tour set against a subtle maple leaf background.
