The Lifetime of Service Archive Release

The Lifetime of Service Archive Release

  • £75.00

Lifetime of Service Archive Collection - 65 stamps from 5 Commomwealth countries

The Lifetime of Service stamps were issued in 2011 and 2012, to mark the Queen and Prince Philip’s 85th and 90th Birthdays and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

It’s a beautifully poignant collection following the passing of Prince Philip and Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in the last 2 years.

Harking back to the historical Commonwealth “Omnibus” issues, like Coronation and VE-Day (which now sell for hundreds of pounds), the stamps share a common format across each of the Commonwealth issuing authorities.

It's practically impossible to put together a complete collection of mint stamps and First Day Covers from all of the countries. But a limited release of archive stock has been authorised so that you have the chance to own at least a flavour of this incredible international Royal Collection.

When you order The Lifetime of Service Archive Collection you'll receive: 

  • 5 countries’ worth of 6 First Day Covers
  • 5 countries’ worth unique 6 value Diamond-shaped sheetlets
  • 5 countries’ miniature sheets
  • 5 Information Cards

In total the collection comprises 65 individual stamps and is presented in its own Luxury Album of over 30 presentation pages.

It’s an exceptional collection to honour the memory of the Queen and Prince Philip and their lifetime of service.

But only a limited number are available.


  • 65 stamps across 5 countries, comprising per country:
  • - 6 First Day Covers
  • - Diamond-shaped sheetlets
  • - Miniature sheet
  • - Information Card
  • Includes presentation pages and album
