The Rolling Stones are the fourth band to appear on a dedicated stamp issue, following the Beatles in 2007, Pink Floyd in 2016, and Queen in 2020.
Royal Mail worked closely with band members Sir Mick Jagger, Ronnie Wood and Keith Richards to create the stamp.
David Gold, Director of Public Relations and Policy at Royal Mail, said: “Few bands in rock history have been able to build a career as rich and vast as the Rolling Stones.
