StampNews.com got to know that Guernsey Post is ready to release a special stamp and limited edition folder to mark Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II becoming Britain's longest reigning monarch and the longest reigning female monarch in world history.

The Alderney stamp (priced £10.00) and folder (priced £95.00) will be issued on 9 September 2015, which is the date when The Queen officially supersedes Queen Victoria’s reign which lasted for 63 years and seven months.

The definitive stamp depicts Her Majesty waiting to greet guests at the Royal York Hotel in Toronto during a visit to Canada in July 2010.

With only 350 available, the embossed, high quality folder contains an imperforate sheet of five of the stamps and a Guernsey £20 Diamond Jubilee bank note.

Guernsey Post's head of philatelic Dawn Gallienne said: ‒ "Whilst still a princess, Her Majesty vowed to reign her whole life. Since The Queen's accession in 1952 following the death of her father, King George VI, much has happened during Her Majesty's reign, and we are absolutely delighted to mark this historically significant royal anniversary".
