Sapphire Jubilee - The Globetrotting Queen
Wednesday, 1 February 2017 | Gareth
To celebrate HM Queen being the first ever British Monarch to celebrate a Sapphire Jubilee, Isle of Man Post Office is thrilled to present this set of six stamps. This collection is a celebration of the diplomatic work undertaken by Her Majesty on state visits across the world, during her 65 year reign. As the stamps feature images from as early as 1954 they feature a mixture of colour and black and white photography.
HM Queen's former press secretary, Dickie Arbiter, provides informative issue text all about our globetrotting Queen who is the most travelled monarch in British history having visited approximately 120 of the 195 countries.
This stamp collection features her visits to the following six countries:
This is the perfect addition to any royalist's collection and makes a fantastic gift. Available in this collection is a set (mint and CTO), presentation pack and first day cover.
