Opportunity to own an official Royal Mail limited edition coin cover issued to mark the 75th Anniversary of the End of World War II
On 15th August 1945 Japan surrended to the United States and her Western Allies during World War II which effectivly brought an end to the war. With an estimated 60 million fatalities, the expectation by the public that the dead would be commemorated became true in the great memorials and cemeteries that remain a fitting tribute today. To mark the historic 75th anniversary, the Royal Mail has rightly issued a limited edition coin cover focusing on the different war memorial sites throughout the world.
At the cover’s centrepiece is a brand new commemorative £5 coin issued especially for the anniversary by the prestigious Royal Mint. The coin has been expertly struck to a brilliant uncirculated standard and weighs 28.28 grams. The coin’s reverse features an intertwined WAR and PEACE with the all-important year dates whilst the obverse features an official portrait of Her Majesty the Queen, whose father King George VI was on the throne at the time of the conflict.
To complete this attractive cover, it includes a brand new commemorative miniature sheet issued by the Royal Mail featuring four stamps illustrating different war memorial sites including Runnymeade in Surrey. The stamps are cancelled on 15th August 2020 - Victory over Japan (VJ) Day - using a specially designed Peace handstamp, which sets in stone the low worldwide edition limit of only 10,000 covers.
The significance of the End of World War II to mankind and the low worldwide edition limit are two key reasons why this attractive cover is in very high demand today. Harrington & Byrne has managed to secure this cover for our collectors however we anticipate a rapid sell out!
