Released on 16 April 2013 to mark the 60th anniversary of the launch of Her Majesty The Queen's world renowned ship HMY Britannia. This striking sheet complements the stamps to be issued by Royal Mail on 30 May to celebrate the anniversary of Her Majesty's Coronation in 1953.

Although stated to be from a print run of 10,000 sheets Royal Mail have verbally confirmed to me in the past that they have not printed 10,000 for similar issues. In practice a smaller number may have been printed initially to meet projected sales, probably in the region of c. 1000 - 2000 sheets.  Treat the 10,000 figure with caution.
