Official Royal Mail limited edition medal cover issued to celebrate the 80th anniversary of Marvel
In 2019 to mark the 80th anniversary of Marvel Comics, the Royal Mail celebrated their universe of superheroes with a stunning medal cover featuring one of its best-loved characters, Spiderman. Generations have grown up with this timeless superhero in comic books and more recently in hugely successful films, resulting in a truly global collector market.
The covers impressive artwork features Spiderman travelling between an urban skyline of buildings. At its centrepiece, it features a brand new, limited edition brilliant uncirculated medal featuring a full colour image of Spiderman. The medal has been struck exclusively for this cover by the Royal Mint.
To perfectly complement this medal, the new cover includes all ten first class stamps issued by the Royal Mail featuring iconic characters such as Spiderman, Hulk, Ironman and Thor. The stamps have been cancelled on the very first day of issue – 14th March 2019 – using a specially designed Spiderman postmark, which sets in stone the 25,000 edition limit.
The significance of the global collector Marvel market and the low worldwide edition limit are two key reasons why this medal cover is in very high demand. Harrington & Byrne has managed to secure a very small number of these attractive covers to offer today.
