The Coronation of His Majesty The King and Her Majesty The Queen Consort took place at Westminster Abbey on Saturday, 6 May 2023 and Royal Mail issued a ‘miniature sheet’ comprising of 4 stamps to commemorate this historical event.
The four stamp designs feature newly commissioned wood engravings by British artist Andrew Davidson. The Miniature Sheet background design, also created by Davidson, depicts intermingling foliage, symbolic of the four countries of the UK: the rose, thistle, daffodil, and shamrock.
The design approach considers the day itself only briefly with the Coronation event depicted on the first stamp of the set. The other three stamps are intended to look beyond the day to “A New Reign” and the New Carolean era, with a look at three aspects personal to King Charles III.
