2003 GB - DX31 - A Perfect Coronation (£7.20)


Issued 02.06.2003.

50th Anniversary of the Coronation of QEII.

Famous for the unique £1 2B (a decimalised recreation of the original 1952 1/3d Coronation stamp) it also has two other unique stamps - the 47p 2B and 68p 2B.

This book contains two panes of definitive stamps .

Printed by Walsall and is noted as the source for the 3 unique stamps below.

Odd Fact :
None of the stamps on the 2nd definitive pane are actually Machins but they are coveted by Machin Collectors anyway.
The stamp at the bottom left (below) is the £1 from the StampShow 2000 Mini-sheet which is not in this booklet but is often mistaken for the Coronation version. They are easily differentiated (see description) and for completeness I have also included the 1/3d from 1953 from which design the two 21st century £1 stamps were copied (bottom right).
