Issue Name: 250th Anniversary of the Birth of Horatio Nelson Coin Cover
Producer: Buckingham Covers
Born 250 years ago, on 29th September 1758, Admiral Horatio Nelson entered British history forever after winning the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. Own our limited edition coin cover because it celebrates one of Britain's greatest heroes.
To mark the 250th anniversary of Nelson's birth, we have created something beyond special. If you have a passion for British heritage, naval history or just the beauty and majesty of the sea, don't miss this stunning coin cover. The cover encapsulates a beautiful NEW medal from Tower Mint. Each is genuinely postmarked at Nelson's birthplace, Burnham Thorpe, Norfolk, on his 250th birthday.
A very limited number will be personally signed by Nelson's oldest, direct descendent, Anna Tribe. She is unsurprisingly a world renowned expert on Nelson.
Nelson fought Trafalgar with 27 ships against a combined French and Spanish fleet of 33. By the end of the day, 17 enemy ships had struck their colours and one was destroyed by fire. In comparison, Britain lost not a single ship. But Nelson paid for the victory with his life.
The breathtaking victory at Trafalgar truly made Britain master of the waves. After Trafalgar, British sea power had no rivals for 100 years.
Loved in Britain by virtually everyone, Admiral Nelson is still a legendary hero today. The British public voted him in the top 10 of the BBCs 100 Greatest Britons. Without doubt, he ranks as one of the greatest naval commanders in military history - and perhaps the greatest ever warrior of the seas.
As you are reading this, picturing the real Nelson who lived and won that decisive Battle, we know you want to honour his victory too.
