To celebrate the final test match of the British & Irish Lions tour, we made a special limited edition product containing the best of both worlds!


BU coin, silver in colour
Contains all seven stamps from the British & Irish Lions stamp sheet
Official Lions licenced product
Limited edition product.


The brilliant uncirculated coin in this philatelic numismatic cover (PNC) was made of a copper-nickel mixed metal and silver in colour. The official Lions emblem was prominent across the stamps and also in the date stamp. The deep red colouring and proud lion are both lavishly portrayed on this PNC and the Lions shield can be clearly seen depicted on the coin. The seven $2.70 stamps were all affixed to this cover, with each region a game was held clearly portrayed.
