NEW UK Coin Cover marks the 150th anniversary of the Royal Albert Hall

*** This product is currently fully reserved so we unfortunately cannot accept any further orders at this time ***

150 years ago, Queen Victoria opened the Royal Albert Hall, and ever since it has become the UK’s home of artistic excellence, scientific brilliance, and sporting achievements.

Now, to mark its 150th anniversary, a BRAND NEW UK Coin Cover has been authorised for release…

UK Royal Albert Hall Coin Cover

Available exclusively from The Westminster Collection, each cover features the UK Royal Albert Hall £5 Coin, struck to a Brilliant Uncirculated quality.

Thousands of these coins will be struck, however only 250 will be available in this exclusive UK Coin Cover – an extremely limited way to own this new £5 coin.

The reverse features a design by acclaimed artist Anne Desmet RA, who specialises in architectural imagery, that truly captures the magnificence of the venue.

Postmarked on the 150th anniversary

Paired with your £5 coin is the official GB Queen Victoria Stamp issued by Royal Mail. This stamp is significant because Queen Victoria opened the Royal Albert Hall in 1871, and therefore it seems only fitting that she is featured on this cover.

What’s more, your stamp has been officially postmarked by Royal Mail with a specially commissioned Royal Albert Hall cancellation on the exact 150th anniversary of its opening 29th March 2021.

JUST 250 will ever be available - PRE-ORDER today

Significantly, because of the special one-day-only postmark JUST 250 Royal Albert Hall UK Coin Covers will ever be issued – one of the smallest editions for a joint UK commemorative you are ever likely to see.

Once these 250 have sold out, no more can ever be produced. So, act now to ensure you add this issue to your collection.
