We mark this anniversary in collaboration with The Royal Mail - The Queen Victoria £5 Coin Cover features all 6 special stamps alongside the brand new official Queen Victoria Bicentenary £5 Brilliant Uncirculated coin. The beautifully illustrated inserts of the coin cover focus on the Victorian era of industry and innovation.
