Description[edit]

Throughout her reign, Queen Elizabeth’s priorities have been loyalty and service to her people. By adapting and modernising the monarchy, while maintaining its tradition and symbols, the Queen has been a true and constant reference point for millions of people throughout Britain and the Commonwealth.

The design treatment and images reflect the Queen’s dedication to service. Beautifully designed by Jonathan Chong, the two stamps use historic and contemporary images to encompass the Queen’s reign.
