Australia has issued a pair of postage stamps celebrating the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II's coronation.

A large-sized 60-cent domestic rate stamp features the Gold State Coach which has been used for every coronation since that of George IV in 1821. The $2.60 international rate stamp features a photographic portrait of the newly-crowned monarch in 1953 and is a detail from a full formal portrait of the Queen and Prince Philip.
