20 Different Torch Relay FDC

Before the Olympics were held in London in 2012, they ran the Olympic Torch all over the country to get as many people as possible involved. Mercury issued a series of covers for each town the torch entered. Each cover has a full colour photograph of the place such as Aberystwyth, Belfast, and Taunton. There is also a special First Class stamp on each cover. The stamp alone would cost 67p today. We have twenty (20) different covers, where they are from will vary, but all 20 will be different. A nice souvenir of the Olympics. From what we understand they were issued at about £3.50 a cover, which means the 20 covers would have cost about £70.00. If you buy it from us, you'll get 20 different full colour covers with first class stamps, not for the £70.00 but for only £15.00. That works out to just 75p a cover just over the cost of the First Class Stamp.

Gloves for handling

Our friends at Lighthouse have designed a glove especially for handling coins. In between the ridges and valleys of your fingerprints there are acids. If these come into contact with the surface of the coins, this can leave your fingerprint indelibly etched into the surface of the coin. The real problem is that it can take years for this ‘fingerprint’ to appear. They have designed lightweight cotton gloves that are easy to wear and still protect your coins from damage due to handling.

50 Notes from 50 Countries

This wonderful pack of Crisp Uncirculated world banknotes comprises 50 notes from 50 countries. If you are considering collecting notes from as many different countries as possible, this is a great place to get you started. These sets were put together over 20 years ago and we thought we were completely sold out until we rediscovered a small box in a storeroom we haven’t visited in some time! It would be much harder to put them together as a group now.
