Canada Strikes Gold!

The 2010 Winter Olympics, officially the XXI Olympic Winter Games is held in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada from February 12-28, 2010.

To celebrate the event, Canada Post issued the Canada Strikes Gold! stamp on February 15, 2010. The stamp designed by Naomi Broudo and Violet Finvers features a Vancouver 2010 Olympic gold medal.

What's unique about this stamp is that it was released within 24 hours after Canada's first ever gold medal win by Alexanre Bilodeau on Canadian soil.
