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.

  • This coin has a £5 face value that is recognized in the Isle of Man.
  • The coin was struck on a 1 oz planchet of .999 fine gold at the Tower Mint and is part of a limited mintage of no more than 500 pieces.
  • 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) awarded this coin its highest grade, Proof 70.
  • NGC certified the coin Ultra Cameo and First Day of Issue.
  • The label features an image of the Penny Black stamp and was hand-signed by Raphael Maklouf.

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."

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