New UK 50p Coin Cover celebrates Rosalind Franklin and DNA discovery

The brand new Rosalind Franklin 100th Anniversary UK 50p Coin Cover has just been issued and features an all-British ensemble of Royal Mint coin and specially commissioned Royal Mail Philatelic Label.

Joint Royal Mint and Royal Mail tributes are without question the most sought-after and highly-desirable coin and stamp tributes of all. And with JUST 1,000 issued for worldwide distribution, they are not expected to be available for long.

BRAND NEW Royal Mint UK 50p Coin

First of all, your cover features the brand new 2020 Rosalind Franklin 100th Anniversary 50p Coin from The Royal Mint

Designed by David Knapton, and struck to a Brilliant Uncirculated finish, the innovative reverse design of the coin features Photograph 51 – critical evidence in identifying the structure of DNA – alongside Rosalind Franklin’s name, for whom an untimely death aged just 37 robbed her of the awards and recognition that would surely have come during her lifetime.

The obverse features a portrait of Her Majesty the Queen by renowned Royal Mint engraver Jody Clark.

Specially Commissioned Royal Mail Philatelic Label

Paired alongside your new UK 50p is a specially commissioned Rosalind Franklin Philatelic Label from Royal Mail, mirroring the Photograph 51 element on both the coin and cover.

Your Philatelic label is also exclusive to The Westminster Collection, so it’s safe to say you won’t find another commemorative like this one – quite simply, it wouldn’t be possible!

And what’s more, your stamps will be officially postmarked by Royal Mail with a special cancellation on what would have been the 100th anniversary of Rosalind Franklin’s birth – 25th July 2020.

A strict worldwide edition limit – just 1,000 available

The Rosalind Franklin 100th Anniversary UK 50p Coin Cover is limited to JUST 1,000 for worldwide distribution.

Unquestionably, this is likely to be one of the smallest edition presentations of the new UK 50p coin that you are likely to seeYour cover will also come numbered to confirm its position with this strict edition, alongside its accompanying Certificate of Authenticity.
