Collecting Royal Mail Prestige Stamp Booklets is an increasingly popular area of philately yet still remains virtually unknown to many collectors. These large, colourful booklets accompany key commemorative stamp issues and feature panes of stamps and pictorial interleaves about the subject.
Understandably some issues are more popular than others and it is these booklets that have seen the biggest rises in catalogue value. Testament to this is the 2002 Royal Mail Golden Jubilee Prestige Stamp Booklet which has seen a rise of over 6 times its original face value and is now catalogued at £45.00.
A box discovered in our stock room
What’s more whilst having a reshuffle in one our stock rooms we have unearthed a box of these books which we can offer to you today for just £39 - that’s £6.00 under its current catalogue value.
This Royal Mail Golden Jubilee Prestige Stamp Booklet contains 25 stamps in total and features unique combinations and variations of stamps not available anywhere else! For example, included in this prestige booklet are an exclusive version of the Golden Jubilee stamps, featuring an upright watermark and revalued versions of the very first 2 stamps of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign.
Using archive photography, it traces Queen Elizabeth II’s journey from Princess to Queen. It features iconic images of her from those early years; from arriving back from Kenya as Queen to performing her first televised Christmas broadcast in 1957. This attractive booklet pays tribute to Her Majesty and is a fitting commemoration of her years of service to her country and Commonwealth. It comes presented in an archive quality Information Page to keep it in pristine condition for your future generations to enjoy.
