More Diamond Jubilee Stamps And Other New Issues.
Two more countries have released news of the stamps they will issue to commemorate the diamond jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II who is the monarch of both Niue and Tokelau which are dependencies of New Zealand. Both issues comprise two reasonably-prices stamps and a miniature sheet. No greedy gimmicks from these two territories, just dignified items which honour their head of state, Jersey Post Office please take note. The Niue issues will be released on 23 May 2012 and each stamp depicts a portrait of the Queen - on the $2.40 is a black and white photograph taken of the Queen during her Commonwealth tour of 1953 and the $3.40 value depicts the official 2012 New Zealand Jubilee portrait of the Queen.
