The year 2020 saw several important WWII anniversaries, and even though Remembrance Day was slightly different, we still came together to remember those who fought and lost their lives in both World Wars and conflicts since.
For this, a Remembrance Day Coin and Stamp collection has been released. Limited to JUST 195 it includes two historic silver coins, two historic stamps, and a Royal Mint £5 coin.
Royal Mint Issue – in BRILLIANT UNCIRCULATED finish
The year also marked the centenary of the burial of the Unknown Warrior, who honours those who went missing in action in WWI and conflicts since. As such the Royal Mint has released a 2020 BU £5 in tribute.
The design, by Natasha Preece, is inspired by the Unknown Warrior and it features a poppy design in breath-taking colour print rarely seen on BU issues. Only 195 have been set aside to be included in this collection.
Two Silver Historic Coins and Stamps
Included are two silver historic half crowns, one from WWI, and one from WWII. Each one was in circulation during the wars, and may even have been in the pockets of soldiers themselves!
Historic coins are always difficult to source, often because they are stored away in private collections or melted down for their precious metal content. On top of that, these coins are historic artefacts, and given the anniversaries within 2020, these dated coins are in particularly high demand.
Also included are two one year only commemorative stamps, each one issued for WWI and WWII commemorations.
Limited Edition – JUST 195 available
As mentioned, this collection has been limited to JUST 195. Historic coin and stamp collections are always in high demand and this set is sure to be no different. Combining historic coins, stamps, and a Royal Mint issue, we are expecting a sell-out.
