HRH THE PRINCE OF WALES - PHILATELIC NUMISMATIC COVER
Striking commemorative coin and stamp cover to commemorate HRH the Prince of Wales 50th birthday.
A mini sheet with 4 x 1st class stamps and a commemorative label. Postmarked HRH the Prince of Wales Tetbury 14 Nov 1998.
Royal Mail's special Commemorative Label - Ben Arkle in Sutherland - is a splendid example of the Prince of Wales's accomplised work as a watercolourist, and was issued as a stamp in 1994.
So it is fitting that the design for the Royal Mint's commemorative crown, celebrating his birthday and highlighting the work of The Prince's Trust, is by Michael Noakes, the winner of a competition between several distinguished artists.
