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.
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."

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.
