A young Elvis Presley graces a new U.S. stamp officially issued Wednesday.

The latest addition to the U.S. Postal Service’s Music Icon postage series features a 1955 photo of the singer taken by William Speer. It’s surrounded by the rock-and-roll superstar’s signature, in gold, and the words “Forever” and “USA” in the corner. Between those words is a gold crown, a reference to Presley’s nickname, The King.

The Presley stamp is the first Music Icon stamp in 2015. Other icons honored in the past few years include Janis Joplin, Johnny Cash, Ray Charles and Jimmy Hendrix.

The new stamp, available at certain post offices around the country, is Presley’s second.
