ALMOST 80% SOLD - JUST 495 ULTIMATE Mr Benn 50p Coin Covers Released

*** ALMOST 80% of the Edition Limit SOLD ***

Incredibly, it has been 50 years since the postman first arrived at No 52 Festive Road to invite Mr Benn to a fancy dress party. Since then, he has been on many adventures and taken millions of fascinated children along with him as he walked through the magical changing room doorway.

To celebrate the 50th Anniversary, a brand new coin cover has been authorised for release, combining the complete set of brand new British Isles 50p coins alongside an officially licensed Mr Benn philatelic label and 1st Class Stamp.

It might just be the ULTIMATE limited presentation.

FIVE Brand New 50p coins

The complete set of FIVE stunning new 50p coins feature illustrations of Mr Benn on some of his best-known adventures; The Red Knight, The Cook, The Clown and The Spaceman alongside the official Mr Benn ‘50’ 50p.

Each coin in the set, issued by Guernsey Treasury, has been struck to Brilliant Uncirculated quality, and is one of just 495 that have been allocated for use in your cover. Almost certainly, this is the smallest edition presentation of the new Brilliant Uncirculated 50p coins you will see.

Officially licensed Philatelic Label

Paired alongside your coins is an officially licensed philatelic label, illustrating Mr Benn in his famous cowboy outfit. As well as this, the presentation cover has also been officially postmarked by Royal Mail on 1st April 2021 at author David McKee's home address in Putney. The date marks the last Mr Benn episode broadcast in the year of 1971.

Bearing that in mind, it’s safe to say you won’t find another commemorative like this one – quite simply, it wouldn’t be possible!

JUST 495 covers available worldwide

An extremely limited worldwide edition of JUST 495 has been set for this incredible cover.

From a collector’s point of view, the decision is obvious. You won’t find these Mr Benn 50p coins in a smaller edition presentation anywhere else. Many collectors are sure to miss out, so do not delay.

Your cover will arrive in a Deluxe Presentation Folder alongside its accompanying Certificate of Authenticity. It will also be individually numbered, confirming its position within the strict edition limit.

This ULTIMATE presentation cover is a must-have for anyone who grew up watching Mr Benn or who wants to pass on his magic to a new generation of children. And remember, it’s strictly limited to JUST 495 collectors worldwide.
