A further four stamps, presented in a Miniature Sheet, feature two shots of the band together and two of their vintage worldwide tour posters.
Royal Mail collaborated closely with the band members and their management team on the stamp issue.
The Rolling Stones become only the fourth music group to feature in a dedicated stamp issue – following on from The Beatles in 2007, Pink Floyd in 2016 and Queen in 2020.
The stamps and a range of collectible products are available for pre-order from today (11 January) at and by phone on +44 (0)3457 641 641
The stamps go on general sale from 20 January 2022

David Gold, Director of Public Affairs & Policy, Royal Mail, said: “Few bands in the history of rock have managed to carve out a career as rich and expansive as that of the Rolling Stones. They have created some of modern music’s most iconic and inspirational albums, with ground-breaking live performances to match.”

The collaboration was brought together and facilitated by Bravado, Universal Music Group’s leading brand management and lifestyle division.
