And now, to mark this important anniversary, you have the chance to order a £2 coin cover collection.

2021 Shackleton BU £2 coins alongside Royal Mail First Class stamps

This collection contains all three of the 2021 Shackleton £2 coins issued by Jersey to mark 100 years since Shackleton departed on his final Antarctic expedition.

Each of the coins has been struck to a Brilliant Uncirculated quality, and each coin represents one of the voyages led by Shackleton; the Nimrod Expedition, the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition, and the Shackleton-Rowett Expedition.

Alongside each of the coins is a Royal Mail First Class Definitive and specially commissioned Commemorative Label that mirror the designs on the reverses of the coins.

Officially postmarked by Royal Mail  STRICT EDITION LIMIT

Importantly, ONLY 495 of these special cover collections have been released. And the accompanying Certificate of Authenticity has been individually numbered to confirm your coin cover collections’ position within this strict, worldwide edition limit.

Each cover has been officially postmarked by Royal Mail with a special cancellation with the 100th anniversary date Shackleton departed on his final expedition, 17th September 2021  guaranteeing the edition limit. Once they’ve sold, no more will EVER be released.

You can order yours today for JUST £60 (+p&p)  and you won’t be charged until your cover collection is despatched to you. But with so few available, you’ll need to act now.
