King Charles gives his stamp of approval to diverse Royal Mail Coronation collection

Royal Mail is also applying for a special postmark to be stamped on letters in honour of the occasion. 

It will run from April 28 until May 10, and will read: “Coronation of Their Majesties King Charles III and Queen Camilla 6 May 2023.”

The stamps, designed by Atelier Works, are available to view ahead of general release at the Postal Museum in London from April 28 as part of the exhibition, The King’s Stamp.

A presentation pack including all four stamps costs £7.50 and the stamps go on general sale on Coronation day on May 6.

Simon Thompson, the chief executive of Royal Mail, said: “Royal Mail is proud to issue this set of commemorative stamps which celebrate the coronation, and some of the causes which His Majesty has championed throughout his many years of public service.

“This is only the third time we have issued Coronation stamps and I am delighted that they mark the start of a new reign and a new chapter in our history.”

Mr Gold urged the public to not just put the special collection of stamps into albums, but to “maybe send a card to somebody they can’t be with that weekend”.
