Have you heard of lunar coins?

They are one of the most exciting opportunities in international coin collecting.

For over 40 years mints from around the world have celebrated Chinese New Year with lunar coins – and their popularity continues to skyrocket, to the point where the lunar theme is the largest ongoing coin programme on the planet.

This year is the Chinese Lunar Year of the Ox, and to celebrate the UK Year of the Ox Coin Cover has been authorised for release…

Official UK £5 Coin and Exclusive Customised Stamp

The Year of the Ox Coin Cover carries Royal Mail’s 1st Class rule Britannia stamp together with an exclusive customised philatelic label which has been produced specially for Westminster Collection customers.

This is paired alongside the UK 2021 Lunar Year of the Ox £5 Coin. This coin has been expertly struck by The Royal Mint to a Brilliant Uncirculated finish – this means your coin has been specially struck and carefully handled to avoid the scratches and chips found amongst their circulating counterparts.

JUST 888 Available Worldwide

Thousands of Brilliant Uncirculated Year of the Ox £5 coins will be struck by The Royal Mint, but ONLY 888 have been kept aside for this special coin cover. This very limited edition limit is in honour of the Chinese lucky number 8.

What's more, the cover has been officially postmarked by Royal Mail, with the exact start date of the Chinese New Year – 12th February 2021. This one-day-only postmark further confirms the 888 worldwide edition limit and means no more can ever be produced.
