Hi Bob

I'm curious as to why you say typographically printed?
As per Unitrade the six Commonwealth stamps were printed
Lithography (5 colours) with foil stamping
Do you suggest that the gold foil was done via typography?

Interesting also about these stamps is that they were some
of the few the Australian printer Leigh-Mardon Pty Ltd
produced for Canada Post in 1994.

Lithograving, yes I used the word typography, although no ink was applied.

The foil stamping is done with a hot metal die, giving the rich, reflective gold in the impressed lettering. In bookbinding, this is just called hot foil stamping, or foil stamping. My terminology may be incorrect, or imprecise as far as the printing trade is concerned.

Thanks for the explanation Bob.
So you really did work in the bookbinding trade.

Yes, did it for 35 years...the last 17 after retiring from my real job. Went through a lot of leather and glue.

On May 2, 2000 Great Britain issued its fifth series of four "Millennium Projects" stamps. The 45 p stamp (SG #2144) of this set shows what appears to be a highway's bicycle lane marking.

Here is the 26 p value (SG #2074) from Great Britain's February 2, 1999 "Millennium Series: The Travelers' Tale" set of four stamps. Stamp represents the development of the bicycle. The dachshund on wheels is an interesting touch.
