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.

Newfoundland was originally a part of Canada which issued its own coinage, now it is part of the Confederation of Canada and they use Canadian coins. This is the Silver Ten Cents issued under King George VI.
It has the crowned Monarch on one side the value and date on the other side. I have many of the George VI 5 Cents, but the last time I ran the George VI 10 Cents they quickly sold out.
With luck a dealer travelling in Canada came across a small group of this important silver ten cents. I say important because Newfoundland no longer issues its own coinage, and you would need one for
your coin of a country collection. The coins are in Very Fine condition and struck in Silver, remember this country no longer issues its own coinage.
