The 2006 Christmas Coin First Day Cover celebrates Christmas with a stunning Gibraltar 50p coin, which pictures a christmas tree and a wreath and the Queens effigy on the obverse and six new Royal Mail Stamps featuring traditional symbols of Christmas. Designed by Japenese digital illustrator Tatsuro Kiuchi, the Royal Mail Christmas stamps identify these popular symbols, which are familiar throughout stories and Christmas traditions.
The coin, which is was designed by Geoffrey Colley, was inspired by Christmas traditions and Geoffrey's interest in making a wreath to go on the door each Christmas.
The cachet design on the cover also compliments the stamps with a traditional snowman and snowflake design. Stamps are postmarked "First Day of Issue Bethlehem Llandeilo, 7-11-2006, Diwrnod Cyhoeddi Cyntaf".
