The Royal Mail issued new stamps featuring Queen Elizabeth II‘s head this Tuesday. Her Majesty had approved these stamps for Flying Scotsman trains before she died.
Royal Mail and National Railway Museum have collaborated to launch these stamps Queen Elizebath. Nearly six months after her passing, Royal Mail dispatches the final set of stamps on the 100th anniversary of the Flying Scotsman trains.
After this last batch of stamps of cross-country trains, future commemorative stamps will have the image of King Charles III image – all geared up for his upcoming coronation on May 6.
On these stamps, one can notice her Majesty Silhouette in the top right-hand corner. These 12 stamps depict the image of a steam locomotive. Altogether, this vintage view will take you back to 1923, when it was built. The series shows the “golden age of steam travel.” Further, one can also see poster artworks dated back to the 1920s and 1930s.
Along with it, you can also see some travel posters on these stamps. One poster will include her silhouette when she was in her 20s. Back in 1968, that image was first used on stamps to celebrate British bridges.
Sadly, the arrival of these stamps marks the end of the glorious Queen Elizabeth II era!
During Queen ElizabeII’s II reigns, her glory spread to every currency, stamp, and theme, including Concorde, Star Trek, and several endangered species. However, these commemorative stamps are not the last ones featuring the Queen’s head. First and second-class stamps of existing stocks will be available for public use until it runs out.
After this announcement, one’s thinking about where to buy stamps. Royal Mail has confirmed that one can pre-ordered these royal mail stamps featuring Queen Elizabeth II from its website.
This national treasure is set to mark this era’s most significant milestone. Let’s celebrate Stamp Queen Elizebath II’s last arrival.
