The Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II
Date of Issue: 13-Sept-2012
In Malaysia, new stamps were issued to mark Queen E’s diamond jubilee and also in conjunction with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's royal visit from Sept 13 to 15.
The stamps feature two designs, both of which are bordered with silver ink.
First design features a “stamp on stamp”, with an older stamp released on June 2, 1953 to commemorate Queen Elizabeth's coronation in the centre. The other features a photograph of Prince William and Kate Middleton to commemorate their visit.
Similar stamps were issued by states other than Selangor on 2 June 1953 to commemorate the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. I have below two such stamps, one from Perak and one from Penang.
