In 2006 Queen Elizabeth II turns 80. This highly respected and hardworking Head of State has made a remarkable impact on her country and the world stage. She continues to attend hundreds of public engagements every year.
New Zealand Post and Jersey Post are delighted to honor this momentous occasion with two stamps that reflect Her Majesty's warmth and regal dignity. Captured in a relaxed style by British press photographer Julian Calder, her image is surrounded by a foiled border of 99% pure silver.
