Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II - 70th Anniversary of the Accession to the Throne

Collection Issue Date: 6th February 2022

In celebration of this historic occasion, we present this new collection

This new collection of eight stamps celebrates the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the first British monarch to reach this milestone. 

We are pleased to announce that a proportion of proceeds from this collection will be donated to the Queen's Green Canopy initiative. 

Issue Information

2022 marks the momentous occasion of the Platinum Jubilee of the reign of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the first British Monarch to reach this milestone, and in celebration of this historic event, Isle of Man Post Office is pleased to present a set of eight beautiful new stamps.

During the creation of these stamps, we wanted to convey the nation’s appreciation for the service Her Majesty has given so graciously and generously. Therefore at the forefront of the designs is the national anthem, God Save the Queen, which is referenced upon the designs and within the stamp borders.

We were pleased to work once more with Lady Colin Campbell, who wrote the issue text for the 2021 Devoted To Your Service royal collection. Lady Colin Campbell, who is known to the British public by the moniker “Lady C” since her acclaimed stint on I'm A Celebrity....Get Me Out of Here, has again written the issue text for this collection. Lady C states “I feel very honoured to have been asked to provide the words which accompany the stamps commemorating our beloved Queen’s Platinum Jubilee… The Queen's reign has both been long and momentous, her accession in 1952 taking place in the mid-point of a century which had started in the horse and buggy age and would end after space travel, the creation of the internet and the digital age were firmly established as everyday occurrences. It is a testament to the steadfastness, integrity and flexibility of The Queen that she has, throughout these massive changes, managed to remain both relevant and the embodiment of all that is good in society as a whole.”

This issue is the perfect collectable to celebrate this momentous occasion, order yours now and join us in marking a lifetime of achievement for our beloved monarch.

We are pleased to be donating a proportion of proceeds from this issue to the Queen's Green Canopy initiative.
