In keeping with the antics of the secret service agent, the Q Branch stamps include hidden features which can be revealed when using a UV light.

James Bond is depicted in 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).

Q Branch vehicles on the stamps are 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).

Royal Mail spokesman 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 and stamp souvenirs, with one image featuring the renowned quote: “We’ve been expecting you.”

The stamps will be available from March 17, ahead of the new Bond film, No Time To Die, which is on release from April.
