The 2015 175th Anniversary of the Two Pence Blue Stamp Silver Coin Coin Quality

In 1990, with the release of the Penny Black Crown, Pobjoy Mint brought together the two worlds of Numismatics and Philatelics. This coin proved exceptionally successful as did many coins issued later which featured special stamps.

Sir Rowland Hill promoted the concept of a single, uniform charge for the delivery of post regardless of the distance within the United Kingdom. From this concept, the modern postal system was born and on 6th May 1840, the Penny Black and Two Pence Blue stamps were issued by the Royal Mail. This simple concept of issuing a receipt and proof of payment for postage was quickly adopted by every country in the world and this British innovation is now 175 years old.

To celebrate this milestone anniversary, the Government of Ascension Island has approved the release of a special coin depicting the Tupenny Blue. This rare stamp is perfectly reproduced on the coin and to make these coins as unique as previous ones, the coin has been produced with a beautiful Pearl-effect blue finish. The coin is available here in Blue Sterling Silver and also in Blue Cupro Nickel.
