Just 495 Battle of the Somme Commemorative Coin Covers issued...

This year, we commemorate the centenary of the battle that has come to symbolise the horrors of warfare in World War One - the Battle of the Somme

Now you can own the complete set of six new 201Royal Mail stamps accompanied by the brand new £5 Proof Coin on this limited edition Coin Cover.

Significantly, the coin has been issued in support of The Royal British Legion. And that’s why for each cover sold, a donation will be made to help the Legion continue their work providing lifelong support for the Armed Forces community.

Of all the WWI centenary issues, those remembering the Somme are expected to be the most sought-after of all. 

Your cover will be postmarked 1st July, and only 495 covers will be issued. So please order as soon as possible to secure yours.
