DateStamp™: 25th Anniversary of the £2

Back in 1997, a new type of £2 coin was introduced for the first time, featuring an innovative bi-metallic design. The complexity was a way to prevent forgers from duplicating it.

And today, you can mark the 25th anniversary of this monumental moment in British coinage with a DateStamp Issue!

25 Years of the Bi-metallic £2 DateStamp

Your cover will feature a 1997 UK Silver £2 coin, one of the first to be struck.

Poignantly postmarked on the 25th anniversary of the coin’s introduction – 15th June 2022 – each DateStampwill arrive presented in a tamper-proof capsule to preserve its quality for generations to come.

Limited to 150 worldwide

Importantly, because of the special one-day-only postmark, just 150 of these DateStamp™ Issues will ever be made available and they will not be around for long.

Celebrations of monumental moments in British coinage are always incredibly popular with collectors, so don’t miss out on securing yours today.
