Why purchase this £10 Isle of Man 2020 5 oz Silver Penny Black with Gold Gilding Ultra High Relief Proof?

Celebrate the 180th anniversary of the Penny Black stamp with this stunning coin. Prior to 1840, the British mail system required customers to pay post-delivery based on how far the piece of mail had traveled. This proved both costly and inefficient. In 1840, Britain moved to a constant rate paid by postage stamps, of which the Penny Black was the first.

  • This coin has a £10 face value that is recognized in the Isle of Man.
  • The coin was struck from 5 oz of .999 fine silver and is part of a limited mintage of just 999 pieces.
  • This proof coin was struck at the Tower Mint.
  • The coin marks the 180th anniversary of the world's first postage stamp and the 30th anniversary of the Penny Black 1990 coin.
  • Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) graded this coin Proof 70.
  • NGC also certified the piece Ultra Cameo and First Day of Issue.
  • The label features an image of the Penny Black stamp.
  • That label was hand signed by Raphael Maklouf.

Historic Penny Black Design by William Wyon and Henry Corbould

Obverse: The obverse features Raphael Maklouf's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, which appeared on coins of many parts of the Commonwealth from 1985-1997. The design, which shows the monarch wearing her Royal Diamond Diadem, appeared on a 1990 coin that marked the 150th anniversary of the Penny Black. Encircling the effigy is a rim frame in which "QUEEN ELIZABETH II," "ISLE OF MAN," and "2020" are inscribed.

Reverse: Henry Corbould refined the design of William Wyon for the Penny Black, which features on the reverse. A left-side portrait of Queen Victoria wearing a tiara is joined by the inscriptions "POSTAGE" and "ONE PENNY" on the stamp. As with the obverse image, this one is encircled by a rim frame. Inscriptions on that frame read, "QUEEN VICTORIA," "THE PENNY BLACK," and "10 POUNDS."

Perfect PF70 UC FDI with Maklouf Hand Signed Penny Black Custom Label

This coin earned Numismatic Guaranty Corporation's (NGC's) highest grade, Proof 70. That means that it is flawless as seen under 5x magnification. It also received Ultra Cameo certification for its sharp contrasts between heavily frosted devices and deeply mirrored fields. NGC further labeled the piece First Day of Issue, a designation reserved for coins submitted for grading through an exclusive process. This information comes on a label that bears an image of the Penny Black stamp and was hand signed by Raphael Maklouf, who designed the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II that appears on the obverse of the coin.
