It is very seldom that a Philatelic Numismatic Cover, featuring a stamp and a coin is issued, especially one containing a solid Gold coin. The 90th Birthday of Her Majesty the Queen is certainly one event that deserves such a tribute.

What makes this set truly exceptional is that it marks a defining moment in history - the Queen’s 90th birthday on 21st April 2016, it was on that very day that just 499 gold coins were struck and the stamps officially postmarked.

  • Features the new 90th birthday portrait of Her Majesty The Queen by British and Commonwealth coin designer, Raphael Maklouf.
