South African Presidential State Visit Silver Coin Cover
64 years in the making...
In celebration of Her Majesty’s 90th Birthday, Royal Mail reviewed the portrayals of Her Majesty on British postage stamps throughout the course of her reign – more specifically, which ones were missing…
For the very first time on a British philatelic issue, a photograph of Her Majesty and another Head of State now appear on a postage stamp.
Such is his place in history, Nelson Mandela was perhaps the only person that could have appeared on the new stamp. And fittingly, this year also marks 20 years since the former President of South Africa made his one and only state visit to the United Kingdom.
Poignantly, you can now own the Queen Elizabeth II and Nelson Mandela postage stamp on the South African Presidential State Visit 20th Anniversary Silver Coin Cover.
Your cover will also comprise an official South African Mint Sterling Silver Protea Coin, featuring the effigy of Nelson Mandela.
Comprising four brand new Royal Mail first class stamps, in collaboration with an official South African Mint Silver Coin, this cover will be of extra interest to discerning Royalty collectors.
The stamps have been specially postmarked by Royal Mail with the exact 9th July 2016 – the 20th Anniversary of President Mandela’s visit.
Strictly limited to just 250 worldwide - each one hand-numbered to confirm its place within the strict edition limit and comes complete in Deluxe Presentation Folder with Certificate of Authenticity.
