Numismatic Covers

PNC

These covers are usually produced jointly by the British Philatelic Bureau (later Royal Mail Stamps or Tallents House), and the Royal Mint. They are not issued for every issue, but usually for specially chosen events, and specially when the subject matter for a stamp issue and for a commemorative coin coincide.
We do not stock these when they are new, as we normally find that they trade on the market at less than the original price, once they appear on the secondary market.

Anything in GREY is out of stock.

"OFFICIAL" ISSUERS
The first list is of covers produced by the main stamp and coin issuing authorities (i.e. Royal Mint and Royal Mail).
