Description

Pobjoy Mint is delighted to announce the new release of the Worlds very first Pearl Black 50p coin to celebrate the 180th Anniversary of the Penny Black stamp. 

This new coin has been produced using the same design as our 1990 coin to commemorate the anniversary of the world's first adhesive stamp. However, our 2020 coin features a change of anniversary and denomination. 

This coin is available in Cupro Nickel Diamond Finish with a lustrous 'Pearl Black' finish, a special technique adopted by Pobjoy Mint. A special anniversary pack has also been designed to house this stunning new coin. The obverse of the coin features the Pobjoy Mint exclusive effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Our 1990 coin commemorated the anniversary of the world's first adhesive stamp which was introduced in Britain in 1840 by the famous reformer, Rowland Hill. The stamp made philatelic history, with a beautiful but simple design by Henry Corbould showing the profile of the young Queen Victoria. 

This stamp quickly became very popular and was well known all over the World as the "Penny Black".
