Secure the Royal Mail Longest Reigning Monarch Stamps

9th September 2015 saw Queen Elizabeth II become our nation’s longest serving monarch – ever, surpassing the reign of her great-great grandmother, Queen Victoria.  To mark this historic milestone, Royal Mail has issued a brand set of 5 stamps.

You can now own these five stamps, postmarked on their first day of issue – 9th September 2015.  What’s more, each stamp has been protectively encapsulated to preserve its future status as a Philatelic Legend.
