Royal Mail James Bond 007 stamps
Royal Mail today reveals images of 10 new stamps being issued to celebrate the James Bond film franchise and the release of the 25th film, No Time To Die, in April 2020. The stamps take inspiration from the six James Bond actors across the decades, with the designs a stylistic tribute to the opening titles from each film.

• A further four stamps celebrate some of Q Branch’s most well-known vehicles
• The Q Branch stamps include hidden features, revealed when using a UV light – and each stamp includes a special 007 perforation
• James Bond is the longest-running film franchise of all time, spanning almost 60 years
• A full set of all 10 stamps, available in a Presentation Pack, retails at £12.20
• The stamps will be available on general sale from 17 March 2020

James Bond is depicted in the following films: Casino Royale (Daniel Craig, 2006); GoldenEye (Pierce Brosnan, 1995); The Living Daylights (Timothy Dalton, 1987); Live and Let Die (Roger Moore, 1973); On Her Majesty's Secret Service (George Lazenby, 1969); and Goldfinger (Sean Connery, 1964).

A further four stamps celebrate some of Q Branch’s most iconic vehicles and the films they appear in: the Lotus Esprit S1 Submarine from The Spy Who Loved Me (1977); Little Nellie, the autogyro from You Only Live Twice (1967); the Bell-Textron Jet Pack from Thunderball (1965); and the Aston Martin DB5, as seen in Skyfall (2012).

Each of the four stamps in the Q Branch Miniature Sheet includes hidden features - a detailed specification of each vehicle - that can only be revealed with the use of a UV light. Each of the stamps also has a unique 007 perforation.

Royal Mail spokesperson Philip Parker said: “James Bond is a British icon, recognised throughout the world for decades. It’s fitting our new stamps celebrate the six Bonds with stylish and evocative designs.”


There are also specially designed limited-edition handstamps for pre-ordered First Day Covers (FDC) and Stamp Souvenirs.

One handstamp image features the renowned quote; ‘We’ve been expecting you’, often associated with Bond and his enemies. The issuing location, Tallents House, is Royal Mail’s Edinburgh office where all Special Stamps are dispatched from.

The second handstamp depicts the issuing location of Spy Post, Wellington, Somerset – and the stylised logo of the forthcoming film, No Time To Die.

Collectors can explore the full range of stamps, and other collectible products available now for pre-order at www.royalmail.com/jamesbond and by phone on 03457 641 641. The full set of 10 stamps, available in a Presentation Pack, retails at £12.20 and will be available on general sale from Tuesday 17 March.
