Gib stamps and The Queen at 90

Gibraltar and the Gibraltar Philatelic Bureau have issued a set of commemorative stamps to celebrate Her Majesty’s Queen Elizabeth II 90th Birthday.

The stamps take a look back at her life through a set of nine stamps featuring an image from each of her nine decades. In addition to these stamps, a new £5 stamp features a photograph by world famous royal photographer Cecil Beaton licensed for the Gibraltar stamps from the archives of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

Once again the stamps have been designed by local designer Stephen Perera who said he was honoured to be able to produce such a historic stamp issue after having also produced the successful stamp issue to commemorate the Queen Longest Reigning Monarch stamps last year.

Meanwhile a very limited edition special folder has been issued which has an embossed outer sleeve and includes a four stamp sheet of the £5 stamp which is only sold within the folder - not separately.
