The image for the 2nd Class stamp is from when the Queen posed for portrait photographer Dorothy Wilding in 1952 to mark her accession and coronation.
The £1.85 stamp is a portrait of Her Majesty taken in November 1984 by photographer Yousuf Karsh.
A picture of the Queen when she attended a banquet at Prague Castle during her visit to the Czech Republic in 1996 features on the £2.55 stamp. The photo was snapped by Tim Graham.
Four new stamps have been issued by the Royal Mail in memory of the late Queen

Royal Mail’s CEO Simon Thompson said: “For the past seventy years every British stamp has been personally approved by Her Late Majesty, Queen Elizabeth.
“Today we are unveiling these stamps, the first to be approved by His Majesty The King, in tribute to a woman whose commitment to public service and duty was unparalleled in the history of this country.”
The four stunning images were previously used in the 2002 Golden Jubilee stamp issue.
They were approved by the late Queen for issue in 2002.

None of the stamps include the silhouette of the Queen normally required on Special Stamps as her image is already used in the design.
The stamps in memory of the royal matriarch come after she died peacefully aged 96 at Balmoral on September 8.
Her state funeral took place at Westminster Abbey last Monday.
