Official Royal Mail Elton John Stamp Release

Issued to mark the 50th anniversary of Sir Elton John’s first album and as he continues his final tour, Farewell Yellow Brick Road, the stamps celebrate 8 of Sir Elton John’s most beloved albums. The set pays tribute to the eclectic array of music styles and emotional journeys behind Sir Elton John’s animated career, including:

  • Honky Château, home of Rocket Man, the titular song of Sir Elton John’s 2019 biographical musical blockbuster
  • Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, featuring Candle in the Wind, a 1997 version of which remains the biggest-selling single since UK and US charts began
  • Caribou
  • Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy, the album behind the tragic Someone Saved My Life Tonight
  • Sleeping with The Past, including Sacrifice, Elton’s first UK solo number one single
  • The One, designed by Gianni Versace
  • Made in England
  • Songs from The West Coast, a latter-day triumph

These albums have become so iconic both inside and outside the music industry that the album covers are considered works of art in their own right. In terms of Royal Mail stamp releases, it doesn’t get more legendary than this. 

Exclusive Capsule Edition Presentation

Each stamp has been postmarked with the first day of issue – 3rd September 2019 – with the Pinner postmark in a moving tribute to the birthplace of Sir Elton John. First day of issue postmarked stamps are extremely limited and cannot be re-created. For that reason, these are the most sought-after of any new issue stamp!

Each postmarked stamp is encapsulated in tamper-proof casing, ensuring that it will remain in a pristine condition for years to come. Together, they come delivered to you in a Deluxe Presentation Case with an accompanying, numbered Certificate of Authenticity, confirming your set’s place within the strict edition limit. This really is the ultimate tribute to one of Britain’s greatest ever artists.

Limited Presentation – just 4,995 worldwide!

Due to the fact that only a tiny number of stamps can be issued with that all important first day of issue postmark, the set is strictly limited to just 4,995 worldwide! This is a tiny amount when you consider the global stardom of Sir Elton John and the enormity of his ever-growing fan base.

For fans and collectors, this first day of issue collector set is one of the most unique and limited ways to own these official new Stamps that is guaranteed to be snapped up in no time.
