Description

This orange coloured 6 cents engraved stamp emphasizes the importance of transportation and communications in unifying the 5 major economic regions depicted on the 1 cent to 5 cents series. Designed by the Canadian Bank Note Company, Ottawa, this stamp has dimensions of 24 mm x 20 mm; there will be continuous printing by the British American Bank Note Company, Ottawa. Foremost in the left area segment is a modern high-speed locomotive designed for inter-urban use; highway transport is symbolized by a truck and a bus; in the background is a lake vessel, and overhead flies a medium range inter-city jet aircraft. The communications aspect is epitomized by a microwave tower, typical of a continent-spanning system supplementing land-line and cable connections. As in lower denominations in this series, a recent portrait of Queen Elizabeth, engraved from a photograph by Anthony Buckley, is incorporated in the right section of the stamp.
