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

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

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 the Silver Proof 50p SELLING OUT in a matter of HOURS at The Royal Mint, a cover like this is now one of the ONLY ways you can own this brand new 50p in stunning Silver Proof quality.

But with JUST 495 issued for worldwide distribution, they are not expected to be available for long.

BRAND NEW Royal Mint Silver Proof UK 50p Coin

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

Designed by David Knapton, and struck in Sterling 925/1000 Silver, 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.

Official Royal Mail Stamps

Paired alongside your new UK Silver Proof 50p coin are the complete set of official Royal Mail DNA Discovery stamps.

Comprising two separate issues from 21 and 17 years ago, the complete set of five DNA Discovery stamps and single DNA Decoding stamp have not been the easiest to get hold of.

Bearing that in mind, 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 495 available

The Rosalind Franklin 100th Anniversary UK Silver 50p Coin Cover is limited to JUST 495 for worldwide distribution.

Unquestionably, this is likely to be one of the smallest editions of the brand new UK SILVER 50p you are likely to see. Your cover will come individually hand numbered to confirm its position with this strict edition.

When you order, your cover will come presented in a Deluxe Presentation Folder alongside its accompanying Certificate of Authenticity.
