In 2012, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II celebrates her Diamond Jubilee, marking 60 years as sovereign. She acceded to the throne on 6 February 1952, following the death of King George VI.
Throughout her reign the Queen's priorities have been loyalty and service to her people. The Diamond Jubilee provides Australia - along with Britain and other Commonwealth countries - the opportunity to celebrate her dedication to duty, and the grace and strength she has brought to her public life and role of monarch.
In addition to the usual product range, two limited edition commemorative covers are being released. Both feature replicas of the Baron stamp using gold or silver precious metals.
Also being released is a new product in conjunction with Royal Mail - a precious-metal international set featuring two iconic portraits that have appeared on the stamps of Australia and the United Kingdom during the Queen's reign.
