On 29 November, His Excellency The Governor Martyn Roper received a framed set of the Cayman Islands Postal Service’s special commemorative stamp issue celebrating the Platinum Jubilee of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Featuring a series of black and white photographs of HM The Queen from the early years of her reign after her accession to the throne in 1952, the Cayman Islands Platinum Jubilee stamp issue consists of a set of four stamps in denominations of 25ȼ, 80ȼ, $1.50, and $1.60 plus a First Day Cover valued at $4.95. 

At the presentation, HE Governor Roper said, “This stamp issue was certainly a lovely tribute to Her Late Majesty The Queen from the Cayman Islands Postal Service as the United Kingdom and the Overseas Territories celebrated her historic 70-year reign. As with the outpouring of affection after Her Late Majesty’s passing in September, it was an appreciated expression of the esteem and respect many people in our Islands hold for our long-serving and devoted late monarch.”

Postmaster General Sheena Glasgow said, “The commemorative stamp issue celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee has proven to be very popular. Her Late Majesty The Queen has been featured in several Cayman Islands stamp issues, and each has proven to be of unique interest to stamp collectors from around the world.”

The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee stamp issue remains on sale at the Philatelic Bureau, located at the Seven Mile Beach Post Office.
