Official Royal Mail Queen Elizabeth II Memorial BU £5 Coin Cover

  Description    Specifications      Free Delivery   


Mark the extraordinary life of Queen Elizabeth II on the poignant 1st anniversary of her passing with an official Royal Mail coin cover

The world was united in sorrow on 8th September 2022, as we paid our last respects to Queen Elizabeth II, the most enduring British monarch in history, who peacefully departed at the distinguished age of 96 at Balmoral Castle, Scotland. Her magnificent reign, spanning an incredible 70 years, was a testament to her steadfast dedication and service to her people. She radiated wisdom, humility, and grace, qualities that endeared her to us all. To commemorate her unparalleled legacy, an official Royal Mail limited-edition coin cover has been issued.

At the heart of the cover is the official United Kingdom memorial coin, which is now unavailable for purchase at the Royal Mint. The £5 coin has been expertly struck to a brilliant uncirculated finish and features on the reverse two portraits of Queen Elizabeth II, representing the breadth of her extraordinary reign. Whilst the obverse features the very first definitive portrait of King Charles III, skilfully sculpted by renowned British artist, Martin Jennings. As tradition dictates, our longest heir-in-waiting faces left, the opposite direction to his mother. This is the very first UK commemorative crown coin to feature the official new definitive portrait of the king.

To complete this historic cover, it includes four black and white commemorative stamps issued by the Royal Mail in memory of Queen Elizabeth II. The stamps were cancelled on the first day of issue – 10th November 2022 – using a specially designed memorial handstamp, which sets in stone the edition limit of only 20,000 covers.

The significance of the Queen’s sad passing and the long-term collector demand for the very first UK £5 coin to feature the King’s new official portrait are two key reasons why the Royal Mail cover will sell out extremely quickly. Secure the perfect tribute to Her Majesty today before it is too late!
