Complete collection of nineteen King Edward VII ‘bi-coloured’ stamps
Due to the popularity of the Queen Victoria bi-coloured ‘Jubilee’ stamps, the frames and colouring were reused for stamps released during the reign of King Edward VII. The key change was the replacement of the portrait of Queen Victoria to one of King Edward VII.
The reign of Edward VII was to last just nine years and this collection features an example of EVERY stamp issued during his reign, a fantastic collecting opportunity.
The eldest son of Queen Victoria, Edward VII was related to royalty throughout Europe and served as the heir and held the title of Prince of Wales for longer than any of his predecessors. During his mother’s long reign, he was largely excluded from political power and spent a lot of his time at leisure and travelling the world. He developed a reputation as the playboy prince, remained a popular public figure however this lifestyle tarnished his relationship with his mother.
This unique collection includes all nineteen stamps released during King Edward VII reign from the half penny to the iconic £1 green stamp and is a must have for all collectors. Due to the continued demand, over the last two decades alone the official Stanley Gibbons catalogue value for a fine used example has risen 150%.
