Illustrated below are two of the values issued for the Canadian Ottowa Conference of 1932. The set consisted of three values, a 3 Cent (scarlet), 5 Cent (blue) and 13 Cent (green). The 2 and 3 Cent values bore the portrait of King George the 5th and the Duke of Windsor (Edward the 8th) when still Prince of Wales. The 13 Cent value was illustrated with an allegory of the British Empire, the figure of Britannia seated between two world globes with the countries of the Empire marked in deeper green.
