This year, Her Majesty the Queen celebrates her Sapphire Coronation – 65 years since she was crowned Queen at Westminster Abbey.
Though she acceded the throne a year previous, the Queen postponed her Coronation for 18 months as she mourned the passing of her father, King George VI.
And while the Accession is not celebrated within the Royal household, the Coronation is – which is why you should join Her Majesty in celebrating her record 65th year on the throne.

Featuring The Royal Mint’s special £5 coin, issued to mark the moment, paired together with the fantastic Royal Mail Coronation stamps, your UK stamp and coin cover has been specially postmarked by Royal Mail with the exact anniversary date – 2 June 2018.
