  • Representing 50 years of decimalisation, this special cover is the perfect commemorative for this key historical and social landmark in modern British history. Produced alongside Ramsey Philatelic Services, the cover is strictly limited to just 150 pieces worldwide and is accompanied by a hand numbered certificate of authenticity, confirming the edition number. The cover features a special postmark dated 15.02.2021, the date on which Britain switched to the decimal currency system 50 years ago.

    The fascinating issue text is provided courtesy of Mike J. Southall, MBE, author of Coins of the Isle of Man. His words provide a detailed historical recount of the switch to a decimal system, looking back to the origins of the decimalisation process in 1849 and concluding on what became known as D Day, on 15th February, 1971.

    Included alongside the cover is a pre-decimal sixpence as well as a decimal 5 pence coin, adding a hint of nostalgia to those wishing to reminisce. The cover displays a 62p stamp from the Master Watchmakers of the Isle of Man issue
