Bahamas stamp – 60th Anniversary of The Coronation of HM Queen Elizabeth II
Queen Elizabeth II was crowned in Westminster Abbey on 2nd June 1953 and is recognized as Sovereign in the Bahamas, although she is not involved in the day-to-day business of The Bahamas’ Government, she continues to play important ceremonial and symbolic roles.
In 2013, the Post Office of the Bahamas is releasing a set of five new stamps depicting commemorative items and packaging released during the reigns of Victoria (65c), Edward VII (70c), George V (80c), George VI ($1) and Elizabeth II ($2) all based on images supplied by Robert Opie.
Robert is known worldwide as a collector of Advertising Memorabilia and the curator of Opie’s Museum of Memories which contains tens of thousands of examples of advertising and packaging materials.
In addition to the five stamps, there is a souvenir sheet containing a single $3 stamp bearing a formal portrait of the recently crowned Queen Elizabeth II.
