I don't think Brenda is really an "ardent collector"!

I feel like I've spent millions buying her QEII machins and commemoratives. There sure are a lot of them.

When I started collecting, c1960 with the album my Dad bought me in Woolies, there were around forty QEII stamps. That's probably a month's worth these days.

It's an image many are familiar with: after all, it's thought to be the most reproduced work of art in history, with over 200 billion examples produced so far.

That almost seems low, although I'm just guessing. As basically the only definitive stamp design issued for over 50 years running, for a country with a sizable population, I figured the number would be higher.
