Released to the general public for the first time and featuring a British £1 Coin and miniature sheet, the UK Longest Reigning Monarch Coin Cover is the essential centrepiece for any serious royalty collection.
This limited edition coin cover features Royal Mail’s ‘ Long to Reign Over Us’ Miniature sheet comprising five stamps.

Encapsulated at the heart of the cover is the 2015 £1 Royal Arms coin, struck by The Royal Mint. The reverse design features a contemporary interpretation of the traditional Royal Coat of Arms by renowned coin artist Timothy Noad – and is widely regarded as one of the best £1 designs ever.
The obverse side carries the fifth coin effigy of Her Majesty the Queen by Jody Clark – and is the very first £1 coin to feature this portrait.
The cover design features a portrait of the Queen taken by famous royal photographer, Baron, in 1953 – Her Majesty’s Coronation year. Queen Elizabeth II is wearing the blue mantle (ribbon) of the Order of the Star of the Garter.
