Design: The coronation of Queen Elizabeth II took place in London's Westminster Abbey, pictured at the centre of the upper segment, the image being flanked by the royal coat of arms (left) and the Queen's personal cypher (right). The flowing lines separating the upper and lower segments form an attractive feature of the design.

History: Label scan courtesy of collector Jean Theriault of Quebec, Canada, who notes that this label is identified as #5, which suggests it may have been part of a series.
