USA 2019 Tyrannosaurus Rex Forever Stamps 




Issue date 29 August 2019

USPS (United States Postal Service) has issued a set of 4 special stamps with a lenticular component to depict the awe-inspiring dinosaur Tyrannosaurus Rex in different growth stages from infancy to adulthood.

This U.S. stamp issue employs lenticular printing, which conveys movement in a still picture by applying a transparent ridged plastic overlay that alters a viewer’s perception of the scene when the stamp is rotated slightly.

Hungarian-born Canadian scientist and paleoartist Julius T. Csotonyi illustrated the stamps, which were designed by USPS art director Greg Breeding.


The original artwork by scientist Julius T. Csotonyi shows a newly hatched T. rex covered with downy feathers and admiring a flying insect, a young adult T. rex approaching through a forest clearing, fossil skeletons of that same young adult T. rex and a young triceratops, and a juvenile T. rex chasing a primitive mammal.

The dinosaur’s remains are now exhibited at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C.

The Tyrannosaurus Rex forever stamps issued Aug. 29 have a different feel to them, and two of the new stamps can show you a new look as well.

The nondenominated (55¢) stamps, issued in a pane of 16, have a very fine lenticular coating that alters your perception of the image that appears on two of the four T. Rex stamps.

Every pane of the T. Rex stamps has an edge-to-edge surface coating, but only two of the four stamps in the set (eight of the 16 stamps on the pane) take advantage of it.

These are the second and fourth stamp from the left in the top horizontal row and the third horizontal row, and the first and third stamps in the second horizontal row and the bottom horizontal row.

The two stamps showing the young T. Rex watching a flying bug and the larger T. Rex chasing a mammal through the woods display no change.

If you slowly tilt the pane from top to bottom and look at just one of the stamps with motion — the second stamp from left in the top row, for example — you should see the scene change from one illustration to a second illustration.

That second stamp in the top row shows the adult T. Rex in the forest looking to the left (his right), and then the scene changes to show the same T. Rex a little closer with his mouth wide open, as though he’s letting loose with a fearsome roar.





The larger T. Rex on the first stamp in the second row changes from a skeletal display to one looking quite alive with full skin covering.



The effect on these stamps is not seen as immediately  possibly because the artwork on the T. Rex stamps is more detailed.

Canada 2019 From Far and Wide with Micro print

Issue date 14 Jan 2019

Canada Post as part of the From Far and Wide series invites you to take a fantasy trip to some of the most amazing and picturesque places in Canada.

Tombstone Territorial Park (Yukon) PermanentTM rate
Yukon’s Tombstone Territorial Park was established as the result of the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in land claim agreement, and the park lies entirely within that First Nation’s traditional territory. The diverse landscape supports a variety of wildlife, including Dall sheep, caribou, moose, black and grizzly bears, and dozens of bird species.

Athabasca Falls, Jasper National Park (Alta.) PermanentTM rate
Athabasca Falls, in Alberta’s Jasper National Park, is one of the most powerful waterfalls in the Canadian Rockies due to the sheer volume of its flow. Fed by the Columbia Icefield, the 23-metre-high falls pour over hard quartzite and cut into the underlying limestone, carving potholes into the canyon below.

Quttinirpaaq National Park (Nunavut) PermanentTM rate
Nunavut’s isolated Quttinirpaaq (-pronounced “koo-tin-ear-paahk”) National Park is at the top of the world, as its Inuktitut name proclaims. Canada’s most northern national park boasts mountains, ice caps, glaciers, valleys and tundra that are home to muskoxen, Arctic wolves, Arctic hares, ptarmigan and the endangered Peary caribou.

Mahone Bay (N.S.) PermanentTM rate
Found on the west shore of Mahone Bay along Nova Scotia’s South Shore, the town of Mahone Bay was originally home to the Mi’kmaq people, which they called Mushamush. Known for its shipbuilding history, visitors flock there to find three heritage churches that form part of the seaside area’s eye-catching scenery.

Little Limestone Lake Provincial Park (Man.) PermanentTM rate
Little Limestone Lake Provincial Park, in north central Manitoba, is the world’s largest and most outstanding example of a marl lake. As the water temperature rises, the calcite separates and forms tiny crystals, which transform the lake from clear to an opaque turquoise or milky blue.

Castle Butte, Big Muddy Badlands (Sask.) single-stamp domestic rate
Castle Butte is a natural structure that was left behind in Saskatchewan’s Big Muddy Badlands after the last ice age. The well-known landmark stands at 60 metres high with a perimeter of half a kilometre.

Smoke Lake, Algonquin Provincial Park (Ont.) U.S. rate
Algonquin Provincial Park boasts a variety of natural, cultural and recreational features. Over the years, the province’s oldest provincial park has been enlarged eight times. Today, many visitors explore its hilly, rocky terrain, mixed forests and more than 2,000 lakes.

Mingan Archipelago National Park Reserve (Que.) oversized rate
Quebec’s Mingan Archipelago National Park Reserve is home to the largest concentration of ocean-sculpted monoliths in Canada. Following the last ice age, sediment and marine animal remains formed a sea floor of limestone in the St. Lawrence lowland, which was sculpted by continental drift and changing water levels into the Mingan islands and coastline.

Iceberg Alley near Ferryland (N.L.) international rate
The annual southbound drift of 10,000-year-old icebergs has brought tourist attention to Iceberg Alley – the route that icebergs travel from the coast of Labrador to the southeast shore of Newfoundland. The 1,800-nautical-mile journey down the Labrador Current to the Grand Banks and out into the Atlantic Ocean takes two to three years.
