A 3D image of the Queen is getting first-class treatment by being issued as a stamp.

The hologram portrait, called Equanimity, will appear on a £10 stamp to be issued by the island of Jersey. It shows the Queen wearing a diamond-studded crown, white ermine-trimmed cape and a single string of pearls.

It was created eight years ago to mark the 800th anniversary of Jersey and the other Channel Islands swearing allegiance to the British Crown.

Another version of it hangs in the National Portrait Gallery in central London.

The stamp will be issued on June 1.
