In 2021, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her 95th birthday. A huge milestone for the eldest and longest reigning monarch in British history, and one that will see the world come together to celebrate.
THE MOMENT THAT STARTED IT ALL…
The 2nd June 1953 is often thought of as the moment that started it all, when a young Queen made her way down Westminster Abbey to make her Coronation Oat, broadcast to millions of people around the world.
An event like this required immense planning, and the focus soon shifted to the philatelic world. With over 100 stamps and involving over 60 countries the Queen Elizabeth II Coronation Omnibus Collection really was an incredible logistical exercise, co-ordinating the issue of Coronation Stamps from the Commonwealth and Crown Colonies throughout the world.
106 stamps from 68 nations
Together, the 106 stamps from 68 nations that make up the Queen Elizabeth II Coronation Collection are more than just a remarkable feat in philatelic logistics. They are some of the most historic stamps ever issued.
As the first commemorative stamps to feature Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in each and every issuing country, they epitomise the excitement and new hope the Coronation brought to a Commonwealth still recovering from the horrors of World War II and the pain of post-war austerity.
Limited number available
Now you can add these 106 Commonwealth firsts to your collection by owning what is probably the most important philatelic collection of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign — The Queen Elizabeth II Coronation Collection.
But understandably putting together a collection of this size from around the globe has not been easy at all. Bear in mind that with significant anniversaries (just like the Queen’s 95th birthday this year) demand spikes, and important stamps like these become even harder to source.
