2018 Queen Elizabeth II 65th Anniversary Reign Issueย 

June 2 of this year marks the 65th anniversary of the coronation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II โ€“ the longest reigning monarch in British history. Many โ€œmore matureโ€ Canadians will recognize the Karsh photo on the cover of the stamp booklet from a series of five coronation stamps issued in the spring of 1953.

The portrait on this new stamp is from a famous sitting in July 1951, when the Queen was still known as Her Royal Highness Princess Elizabeth. Over a period of more than 40 years, Karsh photographed Her Majesty on five occasions, two of them before she became Queen.

One of the worldโ€™s most photographed women, Queen Elizabeth has had her likeness captured by some of the worldโ€™s most famous portraitย photographers, including Dorothy Wilding, Lord Snowdon, Cecil Beaton and Annie Leibovitz. It is this image by Armenian-Canadian Yousuf Karsh, however, that is best known to generations of Canadians.
