To celebrate 60 years of Queen Elizabeth II as Monarch of Great Britain, Ireland and the British Dominions beyond the seas, the Ascension Island Post Office is releasing a new stamp issue.
Each stamp features a charming portrait of Her Majesty. The stamps which are diamond shaped will be issued as a set of six with denominations 15p, 25p, 35p, 40p, 60p and £1.25p each printed in sheetlets of eight with decorative borders.
The same stamps will appear in a diamond shaped miniature sheet with two additional labels with face value of £3.00.
There will also be a single souvenir sheet containing a large diamond shaped stamp with denomination of £2.00p.
