DISCOVERER OF PENICILLIN
Celebrating the discoverer of penicillin, Sir Alexander Fleming, this superb Coin Cover pairs a 43 pence stamp issued by the Royal Mail with a 1 crown Isle of Man coin.
This stamp was one of four issued in March 1999 to honour major medical advances of the past Millennium, the copper-nickel crown minted in 1995 also featuring in a set devoted to great inventors.
Postmarked on 30th April, 1999, this date is the 60th Anniversary of the publication of Fleming's thesis.
Part of the Millennium Coin Cover Series.
