Sunday Stamps: Anniversaries - Canada, Australia

The Queen is associated with both my stamps this week, one from Canada and one from Australia

1967 saw the 100th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation and a series of stamps issued that included - 
Canada - 8 February 1967

I'm guessing that the ship depicted is on a canal - the St Lawrence Seaway?

The golden wattle is the floral emblem of Australia  and appeared as a diamond brooch on the stamp commemorating the 90th anniversary of the birth of the Queen.

Australia - 5 April 2016

For other anniversaries just visit Sunday Stamps 800

I wonder in how many stamps Queen Elizabeth appears!

I like the brooch, pretty.

Fascinating to have stamps from almost 50 years apart. The brooch makes for a very attractive stamp.

This is perhaps one of those rare stamps for the Queen which doesn't have a picture of her! The brooch is nice.
