BREAKING NEWS: Royal Mail reveals the Official Coronation Stamps!
Today, Royal Mail have revealed their brand-new Coronation stamps. Comprised of four stamps, the official Coronation Miniature Sheet pays tribute to four elements of King Charles III’s legacy.
And following the insatiable demand we have already seen this week for The Royal Mint’s Coronation range, collectors are desperate to pair their coin with the official Coronation stamps!

Designed by British artist, Andrew Davidson, Royal Mail’s official Coronation Miniature Sheet symbolises four elements of King Charles’ legacy.
Each stamp has been divided into representations of the Coronation, Diversity and Community, The Commonwealth, and Sustainability and Biodiversity. The designs embody themes of heritage, tradition, cohesion, democracy, peace, and nature – integral values to His Majesty.
These stamps have been thoughtfully set against a design of intermingling foliage, representing the union of the four UK countries: the rose, thistle, daffodil, and shamrock.
