On 6 February this year, Her Majesty the Queen marked 65 years since she acceded to the throne - the very first British Monarch to ever reach their Sapphire Jubilee.
And to mark this historic occasion an exclusive United Kingdom First Day Cover has been issued, featuring the brand new Royal Mail Sapphire Jubilee £5 Definitive stamp alongside The Royal Mint’s Sapphire Jubilee £5 Coin.
Fittingly, for the first ever Sapphire Jubilee in British history, this stamp is also the very first £5 Machin Definitive ever to be issued in commemoration of a specific event.
The Royal Mint’s brand new Sapphire Jubilee £5 Coin features St Edwards Crown, an excerpt from the Queen’s address to the Commonwealth upon her 21st Birthday, and the fifth effigy of Her Majesty by Jody Clark.
Your cover has been postmarked with its first day of issue, 6th February 2017 – the exact anniversary date of Her Majesty’s accession to the throne. This makes the UK Sapphire Jubilee First Day Cover the perfect tribute to commemorate this historic milestone in Her Majesty’s record-breaking reign.
