Philatelic Friday: Nickel

This week's stamp from my box celebrates the centennial of the discovery of nickel in Sudbury, Ontario in 1883. I was just drawn to it by the colors and lettering (including the foil printing, which it turns out is a representation of the metal). I didn't even notice the city skyline until I scanned it in, which added an extra layer to my appreciation of the design. I was able to find out more about the stamp on The Canadian Design Resource, which looks like a pretty awesome site documenting all sorts of Canadian design.
