Please note: This DateStampTM issue will only be available to ship after the postmarking date of 17th December and therefore it is unlikely to arrive in time for Christmas.
50 years ago, The Royal Mint moved from their site at Tower Hill to Llantrisant in Wales. Part of the reason for this move was decimalisation – there just wasn’t enough room at the Tower Hill site to cope with the task of striking millions of new coins.
Llantrisant was built to house the most advanced coining machinery in the world and have a larger capacity than any other mint in Europe, necessary to cope with the amount of new coinage needed.
This was the first time since its inception that The Royal Mint had been based outside of London, and marked an incredibly important moment in the history of our coins.
To mark this move, you have the opportunity to own the Royal Mint in Wales 50th Anniversary DateStampTM.
Featuring the 2016 Wales £20 coin with the iconic Welsh dragon design, and postmarked 17th December 2018, exactly 50 years since The Royal Mint moved to Wales, this coin is sure to be popular.
What's more, each DateStampTM also features the 1st Class Welsh Dragon stamp.
Only 250 will be postmarked with this historic date – guaranteeing the edition limit for generations to come.
However, with such a limited number available, you’ll have to order soon, as they’re not going to be available for long.
