Scotland, £8 Christmas Staffa 1981 (The Angel)

We have found this wonderful Staffa Gold, just in time for Christmas. Staffa is one of the Scottish islands and it issues its own stamps. This is an £8.00 stamp issued in 22ct gold foil in 1981. It features an Angel in the sky on this oversized large gold foil stamp. Now, these stamps are issued for local posting only, but it comes in a red gold embossed folder with a green inner. What could be more appropriate for Christmas than a gold foil Angel stamp in a red and green presentation folder? This stamp is now almost 40 years old. The face value was £8.00, the presentation folder cost a bunch and then there is the gold foil. So we think our price of just £14.50 is very reasonable and what a fantastic Christmas gift it would make for a collector or a youngster.

Picture of 7 Different WWF First Day Covers

7 Different WWF First Day Covers

We offered these covers more than ten years ago and Steve has just found a small group that was ‘misplaced’. They are the Official World Wildlife Fund First Day Covers and they were issued all over the world between 1989-1990. Each cover has a full colour drawing of one animal and that country’s stamp with the same animal. It is affixed to the cover and cancelled with a special First Day of Issue cancellation. They are beautiful First Day Covers and helped raise a lot of money to help preserve animals world-wide. Here we offer them either in packages of 7 different First Day Covers. Supplies are very limited and they are fantastic.

Vatican, 2 Lire (Holy Year) 1958 Brilliant Unc_obv

Vatican, 2 Lire (Holy Year) 1958 Brilliant Unc

Citta del Vaticano, or Vatican City, issued its own coins up until 2002 when it adopted the Euro. These Aluminium 2 Lire coins (KM.50) were issued in the name of Pope Pius XII in 1958 and were the last of their type issued since he died in October 1958. The coins are low mintage with only 30,000 being struck. They have the crowned shield on the obverse and on the reverse the figure of Fortitude standing with a lion at his feet. Even better, they come in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and are now nearly 65 years old and rather difficult to find.
