Limited edition coin cover issued to mark the latest European National Football Championships
One of the biggest sporting competitions in the world took place this summer, the European National Football Championships. 24 nations from across the continent competed to be crowned champions of Europe, with Italy narrowly beating England in the final after a penalty shoot out at Wembley Stadium. To mark this significant sporting event, which was followed by hundreds of millions of people around the world, a limited edition coin cover was rightly issued.
The cover’s centrepiece features a brand new officially licenced UEFA Euro 2020 commemorative coin. The eight-gram coin has been expertly struck to a proof-like standard and plated in 999/1000 fine silver. The reverse features the famous Henri Delaunay Cup, named after the very first General Secretary of UEFA who was responsible for the creation of the contest. All the host cities are named around the perimeter of the coin including London, Dublin and Glasgow. Whilst the obverse features an official portrait of the Queen, who has impressively reigned throughout every single European Championship!
Perfectly complimenting the officially licenced tournament coin is a replica of a specially commissioned hand painting of a footballer by renowned British artist, Diane Fawcett-Walker.
To complete this impressive cover, it includes three regional stamps from the three home nations that participated in the tournament, England, Wales and Scotland. The stamps are cancelled exactly 100 days before the tournament began – 3rd March 2021 – using a specially designed handstamp which sets in stone the low worldwide edition limit of 2,021 covers.
The global popularity of football and the low worldwide edition limit are two key reasons why the cover is in high demand. Secure your cover today before they sell out.
