£10 - HM QE II 80th Birthday

The high value stamp issued by Guernsey to commemorate the Queen's 80th Birthday is recognised as being one of the most elegant and popular stamp issued in recent times by the Island.

Her Majesty the Queen has visited the Island in several occasions as a ruling Monarch, first in 1957, then in 1978, 1989 and 2001. However, her most memorable visit was probably in 2005 when her Majesty visited the Island to join the Islanders in their celebration of the 60th year of the liberation from the occupying German forces.
