25th ANNIVERSARY OF HER MAJESTY QUEEN ELIZABETH II’s ACCESSION TO THE THRONE
On 6th February 1952, Her Most Excellent Majesty Elizabeth the Second succeeded to the throne as Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and Head of the Commonwealth.
In commemoration of Her Silver Jubilee, the Government of Bermuda has issued a set of three postage stamps:-

5c Her Majesty: during a state visit to Bermuda in February 1975. She is shown admiring the scene from Gibb’s Hill, Southampton Parish, now known as “Queen’s View” in, honour of Her Majesty’s visit.

20c King Edward’s Crown. The original crown of the Sovereign Head of State, believed to have been that of Edward till! Confessor (reigned 1042 – 1066) and perhaps even Alfred the Great (reigned 871 – 899) was broken up in 1649 by order of Parliamentary Commissions. Its name and traditions live in the great gold crown shown on the stamp which was made for Charles II and which has been used in every coronation ceremony since although not always for the actual crowning.
The Crown contains some 440 precious and semi-precious stones and weighs nearly five pounds.

$1.00 Her Majesty seated in Her Chair of Estate after having been recognised by the assembly in Westminster Abbey. Her Majesty is supported by the Bishops of Durham, Bath and Wells and her maids of honour.
