Canada 2000 Official Millenium Keepsake Stamps and Medallion
"The arrival of the new millenium is a time not only to reflect on the remarkable forces that have shaped our past, but also to renew our hope in the possibilities of the future.

Canada Post's Official Millenium Keepsake, containing 3 unique souvenir stamps, was created especially to celebrate this singular moment in our history.

The timeless message of peace is found in the dove.

The first stamp is printed from a classic steel engraving.

The serenity and confidence embodied in the face of a child are captured in a coloured lithograph.

The dazzling holographic Canada 2000 stamp celebrates the promise of future innovation.

Also included in the set is a Canada 2000 medallion, all in an embossed, brushed aluminum presentation case.
