Jersey Post Platinum
The queen’s platinum jubilee stamp issue

In June 2022, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II celebrates her Platinum Jubilee, the 70th anniversary of her accession to the throne. To mark the anniversary Jersey Post are issuing a single £10 stamp on 1st June 2022, a day ahead of the planned bank holiday celebrations. This special stamp will form part of Jersey Post’s definitive range and will remain on sale for at least five years.

Our brief was to create a unique stamp and associated products, using an appropriate portrait of The Queen. Our research into the period when the young princess was in accession to the throne revealed unique portraits encapsulating the style and elegence of the period.

We used classic typography, regal flourishes and intricate embroidery detail from The Queen’s Coronation gown to embellish the portrait, using a range of unique printing processes for a stamp issue.

Creating the stamp

Using a series of portraits of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II taken by Dorothy Wilding in 1952, the year of Her Majesty’s accession. The Queen can be seen wearing the George IV State Diadem which she also wore to her Coronation in 1953.

The stamp has been printed with several special ink processes to reflect the prestigious nature of the occasion: platinum suprametal, silver hot foil, spot gloss UV varnish and iridescent ink.
