Posten, the Swedish post office, is to mark the 60th birthday of King Carl XVI Gustaf with a new stamp design.

The stamp, described as a classic profile portrait, will be available from Wednesday along with two other new series. One honours Sweden's coffee culture, while the other explores 'the mythical character of the forest' and is a collaboration between eight Nordic post offices.

This is the 23rd time the Swedish king has featured on a stamp since he succeeded to the throne in 1973.

The king's birthday is on April 30th.
