Limited to JUST 500: NEW H.G. Wells £2 DateStamp™ Issue

BRAND NEW UK £2 has been authorised for release to honour the life and works of H. G. Wells on the the 75th anniversary of his death.

He is arguably best known for The Time Machine, The Invisible Man, and The War of the Worlds. Elements of these iconic novels are depicted in the £2 coin design by Chris Costello – in what’s the most controversial coin design of the year.

The striking design hit the headlines earlier this year when eagle-eyed collectors picked up on the additional leg featured on the Martian from Wells’ famed The War of the Worlds that are famously known as tripods!

JUST 500 available worldwide – sell-out likely

Thousands of the new Brilliant Uncirculated H.G. Wells £2 Coins will be struck, however only 500 will be available in this exclusive DateStamp™ Issue – an extremely limited way to own this new UK £2 coin.

DateStamp™ issues are always incredibly popular with collectors and have a strong sell-out history. In fact, previous £2 issues – such as the VE Day £2 – have completely SOLD OUT within days! All signs suggest this issue is likely to sell-out just as quickly.

Postmarked with the 75th anniversary date of H.G. Wells’ death

Your coin will be officially postmarked by Royal Mail with the exact date of the 75th anniversary of H.G. Wells’ death – 13th August 2021.   

What’s more, each coin comes protectively sealed in a tamper-proof numismatic capsule with its own unique serial number so you can even register it online to receive your official DateStamp™ registration certificate.

Remember, because of the special one-day-only postmark, just 500 of these issues can ever be produced.
