Queen Elizabeth II Honored on Canadian Stamp

First Day of Issue: May 8, 2013 - Canada

Canada has issued a new postage stamp celebrating the 60th anniversary of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.

Princess Elizabeth became Queen on February 6, 1952, after the death of her father, King George VI, yet the Coronation didn’t occur until 16 months later.

Queen Elizabeth II was crowned on June 2, 1953, at Westminster Abbey, the setting for coronations for more than 900 years.
