Queen’s Coronation anniversary stamps

Every British stamp bears at least a silhouette of the Queen’s head, but a new set released today to mark the 60th anniversary of Elizabeth II’s Coronation features the first specially-commissioned portrait in Royal Mail’s history.
The six stamps feature portraits of the Queen dating from 1953 to the new commission, by the artist Nicky Philipps, which will appear on the first class (60p) stamp.
