Coronation Commemoratives is the Theme of
Cook Islands Postage Stamps

First Day of Issue: February 6, 2013 - Cook Islands

Cook Islands has issued a set of six postage stamps featuring various commemorative items dating from the Coronation of Queen Victoria through the present monarch Queen Elizabeth II.

Medals, china or pottery drinking mugs - sometimes badges - were all treasured keepsakes for generations. They were, and remain, remembrances of times when processions, pageants, firework displays, street parties and sports celebrated the Coronation of a new King or Queen.
