Why purchase this Ultra High Relief 2020 Isle of Man £5 1 oz Gold Penny Black Proof?
The history of mail changed forever in 1840 when Great Britain changed from post-delivery payment to constant rates paid by postage stamps. The new system proved both more efficient and less costly than the one that it replaced, and as a result the use of mail increased dramatically. This coin commemorates the 180th anniversary of the first postage stamp, the Penny Black.
Classic Queen Victoria Design by William Wyon and Henry Corbould
Obverse: The obverse features the Penny Black stamp, which bears a design that was created by William Wyon and refined by Henry Corbould. It bears a left-side portrait of Queen Victoria wearing a tiara along with the inscriptions "POSTAGE" and "ONE PENNY." The rim frame of the coin features the monarch's name, "QUEEN VICTORIA," the name of the stamp, "THE PENNY BLACK," and the coin's face value, "5 POUNDS."
Reverse: On the reverse is Raphael Maklouf's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, which appeared on a 1990 coin celebrating the Penny Black. She dons her Royal Diamond Diadem. A rim frame encircling the effigy bears the inscriptions, "QUEEN ELIZABETH II," "ISLE OF MAN," and "2020."
