Every year, Canada Post issues more than 50 new stamp designs, many of which are released in limited quantities and are highly sought after by collectors. The ultimate collection of Canada's stamps each year is the Annual Collection Book, produced and officially issued by Canada Post. These collections include every stamp issued in the entire year in perfect mint condition.  All of the stamps can be set into the professional stamp mounts appropriately placed in the 68 to 125 page hard cover books.  In each year, the stories, people and events that inspired the entire year of stamps are showcased with extensive high quality glossy colour photographs and illustrations.  In many cases, these collections include scarce stamps that were not widely released through regular post office outlets.  

These Annual Collections were issued at an average price of about 50% above the face value of the stamps, reflecting the value of the high quality presentation books that are included.  As complete collections including all of the scarcest issues, the current retail values for Annual Collections as shown in the Unitrade Stamp Catalogue are now about double the original issue price, and about triple the face value of the postage stamps.

Canada Post has set an objective of introducing new collectors to the hobby. All stamps remain useable postage, although they are far more sought after as high quality collectibles. Annual Collections were first introduced by Canada Post in the early 1970's, and have continued to be offered every year right up to the present.  Most of these collections have appreciated significantly in the collector market after the years of issue and have become difficult to find in perfect condition.  

Includes five glossy paper hard cover books, one from each year 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008. (Books are approximately 10" x 11" x ¾"). There is an envelope in each book with every stamp issued in each of these years. The stamps can be set into the book in the appropriate place where the story and historical background of each stamp appears.

• 300 mint condition stamps
• Total face value of the useable postage stamps is $184.19
• Current retail catalogue value (for the five sets combined) is $565
• 2005 Set includes a bonus Oscar Peterson music CD.
