Canadian Stamp News is Canada's leading source of information about
stamp collecting and related fields.
The majority of our readers are Canadian, and we concentrate on the
unique circumstances surrounding collecting in our native land. Our
editorial pages include information on new and old issues, as well as
commentary, investment tips and Canada's most up-to-date listings of
Canadian coin and paper money prices.
The magazine had its roots more than 40 years ago when Canada Coin
News was formed by Chet Krause, who built the largest hobby
publishing company in the world out of Iola, Wisconsin.
Very early, on CCN started to include stories on stamp collecting. In
1976 then publisher Don Thomas split what was then called Coin,
Stamp, Antique News into separate coin and stamp magazines, creating
From that time on, CSN has been a strong advocate for stamp
collectors, and a vital source of information about the hobby, as
well as a meeting place for collectors and dealers.
Over the years, the publication changed hands several times, ending
up with its present owners, Trajan Publishing, in 1989.
Today, with a presence at virtually every major philatelic event in
Canada, the magazine continues to showcase the very best in stamp
collecting news. New issues, major sales, shows and exhibits, and
discoveries all regularly appear on our pages.
