Back in 1990, Pobjoy Mint issued a coin which was the most innovative coin of its time and in fact was awarded with no less than Three Coin of the Year Awards: Best Crown, Most Innovative Coinage and overall Coin of the Year.
The coin in question was produced to commemorate the anniversary of the world’s first adhesive stamp which was introduced in Britain in 1840 by the famous reformer, Rowland Hill. The stamp made philatelic history, with a beautiful but simple design by Henry Corbould showing the profile of the young Queen Victoria. This stamp became popularly known the world over as the “Penny Black”.

I'm a stamp collector and have a Great Britain "Penny Black" - the first ever stamp issued to put on an envelope. I saw in some publication a "Penny Black Coin" I wanted to enhance my "Penny Black" stamp presentation. I have been buying coins from APMEX for several years, so I "searched" its website for the "Penny Black". Bingo, they had it at a very low price. Deal done and APMEX gets another feather in its cap from me for doing everything quickly and honorable -- Hollis Biddle, Woodway, Texas
