As we look back on last year’s stamps, we wanted to focus on some of the more memorable issues and here are my top picks:
We kicked off the year with these stunning Music Giants stamps dedicated to legendary rock band The Rolling Stones. Active for almost six decades, they are one of the most popular and enduring bands of the rock era.
2022 marked the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. This was an unparalleled event in British history. For 70 years the Queen had been the ultimate symbol of the United Kingdom. Our cover featured the official emblem of the Platinum Jubilee, along with a beautiful image of the Queen travelling down The Mall in the Diamond Jubilee State Coach.

Two years to the very day the country first went into lockdown on the 23rd March, these poignant new stamps were issued following a Royal Mail stamp competition to honour the heroes of the Coronavirus pandemic.
There are an estimated 7.3 million cats in the UK. The stamps in this issue feature a selection of the most popular owned cats, split equally between pedigree breeds, such as the Maine Coon and our much-loved moggies – making it the purr-fect gift for cat lovers!
More cheese Gromit! Who doesn’t love a bit of Wallace and Gromit? These fabulous new stamps showcased some of Aardman’s best loved animations, celebrating the studio’s 50th anniversary.
2022 marked the momentous occasion of King Charles III’s first Christmas broadcast following the sad passing of his mother and our Monarch, Her Majesty the Queen. The Christmas broadcast has been a Christmas day tradition for the past 70 years.
