Jersey 2015 Queen Elizabeth II The Longest Reigning British Monarch Silk Miniature Sheet

Issue date 9 September 2015

Jersey Post has issued a Silk Miniature Sheet commemorating Queen Elizabeth II - The longest reigning British Monarch. The miniature sheet features a painting commissioned by Buckingham Palace to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee in 2013 depicting the Queen standing on the Cosmati pavement, the spot where every English Monarch has been crowned since it was commissioned by King Henry III in the 13th century.

Princess Elizabeth, aged 25, acceded the throne on the death of her father King George VI on 6 February 1952. On September 9, 2015 Queen Elizabeth II will become the longest reigning British Monarch surpassing the reign of her great-great grandmother Queen Victoria who ruled for precisely 23,226 days, 16 hours and 23 minutes.
