Today, four days ahead of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II‘s birthday Australia Post released the 2018 set of stamps.

The Australian Queen’s Birthday postage stamps mark the 92nd birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II with two designs that feature a floral theme.

On the domestic-rate stamp, the Queen is pictured during her 90th birthday celebrations in April 2016. The Queen was photographed arriving to open the Alexandra Gardens Bandstand, in Windsor, as part of a day of visits with Prince Philip. On the international-rate stamp, the Queen is attending a 2015 service to mark Commonwealth Day – the celebration of the Commonwealth of Nations.

The domestic stamp also features a close-up photograph of the ‘Queen Elizabeth’ (also known as ‘Queen of England’) – a tall grandiflora rose introduced in 1954. The Queen Elizabeth rose was named to recognise the Queen’s ascension to the British throne in 1952 and subsequent coronation in 1953.
