BRAND NEW UK Coin Cover marks 75 years since End of WWII – JUST 250 released

To mark the 75th Anniversary of the end of the Second World War a BRAND NEW joint Royal Mail and Royal Mint UK Stamp and Coin Cover has been issued – the perfect tribute to his historic anniversary.  

Encapsulated into the cover is the BRAND NEW 2020 End of WWII £5 coin from The Royal Mint, struck to a Brilliant Uncirculated finish.

The poignant design by Matt Dent and Christian Davies is inspired by war memorial inscriptions. The combination of ‘WAR’ and ‘PEACE’ captures the magnitude of events and allows us to reflect on the immense struggle and sacrifice to achieve lasting peace. The obverse features a portrait of Her Majesty the Queen by renowned Royal Mint engraver Jody Clark.

Paired alongside your new £5 coin are the official Royal Mail VE Day ‘Peace and Freedom’ stamps. Issued 25 years ago to mark the 50th anniversary of VE Day, they are not the easiest stamps to get hold of. Featuring the iconic image of St. Paul’s cathedral illuminated by searchlights, and British troops celebrating the end of the war with French civilians, these Royal Mail VE Day stamps have firmly established themselves as a collector’s favourite.

And, what’s more, your stamps will be officially postmarked by Royal Mail with a specially commissioned cancellation on the exact 75th Anniversary of the end of the Second World War – 2 September 2020.

Limited Edition – JUST 250

Significantly, because of the stamps’ limited availability, JUST 250 End of World War II 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!
