The 2020 UK Coin Cover marks the 200th Anniversary of King George III’s death
To mark the 200th Anniversary of King George III’s death a UK Coin Cover was issued – the perfect tribute to his historic reign.
Available exclusively from The Westminster Collection, each cover features the 2020 George III £5 coin from The Royal Mint, struck to a Brilliant Uncirculated finish.
Designed by Dominique Evans, the reverse of the coin features an iconic ‘bull head’ portrait of George III, surrounded by the symbols of his kingdom, including Windsor Castle and the King’s Observatory. The obverse features a portrait of Her Majesty the Queen by renowned The Royal Mint engraver Jody Clark.
Paired alongside your £5 coin are the official Royal Mail Crown Jewels stamp set, featuring eight beautiful stamps, each showcasing an iconic piece of regalia used during the coronations of our monarchs, some of which would have been used back in 1760 when George III became king.
And, what’s more, your stamps have been officially postmarked by Royal Mail with a specially commissioned Windsor Castle cancellation on the exact 200th Anniversary of his death – 29th January 2020.
Limited Edition – JUST 250
Significantly, because of the stamps’ limited availability, JUST 250 George III UK Coin Covers have been issued – one of the smallest editions for a joint UK commemorative you are ever likely to see.
With a limited edition of JUST 250, a sell-out is expected, secure yours now!
