In 1840 an innovative new idea was launched that was destined to transform the way we communicate with each other - the postage stamp.

In 2015 the world's first postage stamp - The Penny Black celebrated its 175th anniversary. The Penny Black is a symbol of the wonderful era of innovation during the 19th century. It may surprise you to know that, despite its world fame, the Penny Black was only ever issued for a little over a year.

An original 1840 Penny Black stamp and a pure gold coin brought together in an exclusive limited edition set.

The Penny Black Anniversary Stamp and Gold Coin Set includes an original 1840 issue of this famous stamp together with a 1/4 oz pure gold coin.
