The Sapphire Anniversary of HM – Gifts fit for a Queen
Isle of Man – To celebrate HM Queen being the first ever British Monarch to celebrate a Sapphire Jubilee, Isle of Man Post Office is thrilled to present this miniature sheet. Over Her Majesty’s 65 years on the throne she has travelled to just under two thirds of the countries in the World and received many, many gifts. The stamp on this miniature sheet shows the Royal Mounted Canadian Police presenting Her Royal Highness with her much loved horse, Burmese.
The accompanying issue text written by Dickie Arbiter highlights some of the more interesting and unusual gifts presented to HM Queen over her 65 year reign.
Available in the collection is the miniature sheet (mint and CTO), first day cover and presentation pack.
