An unforgettable collecting event...

Prior to the 2015 Solar Eclipse, the last solar eclipse that was visible in the UK took place in the Summer of 1999, and caused an unexpected surge in collecting.

Testament to this is the 1999 Royal Mail Solar Eclipse Miniature Sheet issued on the 11th August – the date of the eclipse.  Originally issued for £2.56, in the 15 years since its release, this miniature sheet has seen an increase in its value by almost 10 times and is now catalogued at £22.50!

After recently unearthing 247 of these miniature sheets in our archives, you now have the limited opportunity to own this sought after miniature sheet for just £12.50 (+p&p) – that’s £10.00 under its catalogue price.

With just 247 of these miniature sheets available, it’s advisable to act now to avoid missing out.

Order Ref 185/199U/9


  • Featuring the 4 x 64p stamps celebrating the development of astronomical teles
  • Size of sheet: 89mm x 120mm
