Case Study: Olympic Games Coin Cover

Client: The Royal Mail

A fascinating new 1948 Olympic Games Coin Cover celebrating the post-war ‘austerity’ Games held in London. This unique pack carries four real 1948 Olympic Games stamps (not replicas), a 1948 Half Crown coin and a unique cancellation mark. A collection of evocative items accompany the cover including the iconic 1948 poster and a ration book, as well as authoritative details of the background story. It is an official LOCOG endorsed Olympic product.

Royal Mail Says....

We received samples of the 1948 Olympic coin covers. I just wanted to say what a great job that has been done, print wise they look fantastic and I’m sure they’ll be a big hit with our collectors. The spare samples I need to send to Emil Zatopek’s daughter which is pretty cool.
