Gibraltar/Bahamas Coin Cover
In 2002 H. M. Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her Golden Jubilee as our Queen, 1952-2002. To honour
this event some of the Commonwealth nations issued either crowns or stamps. This is a wonderful
Crown Cover from Gibraltar and the Bahamas combined in a First Day Cover (FDC).
The Crown shows the Queen looking down at Prince Charles as an infant in his crib. It was issued in
1997 by Gibraltar for hers and Prince Philip’s Golden Wedding Anniversary. The two stamps were issued
for the island nation of the Bahamas and cancelled on the First Day of Issue.
The cover shows the Queen smiling as is usual and carrying a beautiful bunch of flowers. A most
unusual crown and not one that we have seen before, so here is a chance to add to your collection.
