To celebrate the 175th Anniversary of the Penny Black the worlds first postage stamp, the world renowned British Pobjoy Mint has issued an incredible 5 oz silver coin that is absolutely stunning. First of all, the coin features the exact same design of Queen Victoria's portrait thats on the stamp. But the Pobjoy mint has developed a special "Pearl Black" finish just for this issue and when you look at the coin it looks as if an actual square Penny Black stamp has been inlaid into the round surface of the coin and the contrast of the black portrait with the silver background just jumps out at you. They did this design 25 years ago for the 150th Anniversary and won the Triple Crown at the Coin of the year awards (most innovative, best crown overall C.O.T.Y.).
There's only 2,000 coins that are being issued for worldwide distribution and we have the last of them available at the special price of $395 per coin. It comes in original Government packaging which is a black leather presentation case and of course the coin is encapsulated with the original Certificate of Authenticity.
