The Tristan da Cunha Post Office is celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the Coronation of H.M. Queen Elizabeth II in 2013 with the release of a set of five new stamps depicting commemorative items and packaging released during the reigns of Victoria (35p), Edward VII (45p), George V (70p), George VI (£1.10) and Elizabeth II (£1.50), 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 material as well as other Royal Memorabilia.

In addition to the issue, there is a souvenir sheet containing a single £2 stamp bearing a contemporary portrait of Her Majesty.
