The island of Alderney has issued a set of six stamps to mark the sixtieth anniversary of the Queen's coronation. The stamps feature black and white images of key moments in the coronation, which took place on 2 June 1953 - and was the first coronation to be televised - with an estimated TV audience of 20 million.

The six stamps show:
  • The Queen on her way to the coronation, in her golden coach (40p)
  • The coronation regalia, including the crown and orb (53p)
  • The Queen entering Westminster Abbey, where Britain's monarchs have been crowned since at least 1066 (55p)
  • The Queen stands before the High Altar of the Abbey (63p)
  • The Queen during the Coronation ceremony (71p)
  • An official Coronation portrait of the newly-crowned Queen Elizabeth II (79p)
