A 'definitive' stamp that sees the Olympics logo next to Queen's head will be sold by Britain's Royal Mail for the first time.

People residing in UK will be able to buy 'everyday' first class stamps which display the Olympic as well as Paralympic logos from next week. These can be brought from retail shops and post offices.

The 'definitive' version of these stamps generally features an image of the Queen only and it's for the first time that a viable logo has been added to it, BBC reports.

There would be two different versions of these unique stamps. While one of them will contain the list of main dates in the countdown to the Olympics in July and the Paralympics in August, the other version will possess a quote from London 2012 chairman, Lord Coe.

The Royal Mail is also preparing to launch special "gold medal" stamps, everytime an athlete from the Great Britain contingent wins a gold medal.
