Philatelic? Or a taste for numismatics?

Royal Mail + Royal Mint

 

A range of highly collectible commemorative coin, medal and stamp packs to celebrate our national occasions. We continue to work with the Stamps and Philatelic department of Royal Mail to produce a range of coin and medal packs. The packs need to appeal to enthusiasts of specific subject as well as to dedicated philatelists and numismatists.

Dunkirk – 70th Anniversary

Format: Pack, stamps. envelope, information card and coin

For many, it was the darkest hour of the Second World War. In just ten days the German Army had rolled across all of Holland, Belgium and into eastern France. The British Expeditionary Force and the remains of the Allied armies were hemmed in around the coastal town of Dunkirk. Should they stay and face almost certain annihilation, or evacuate to Britain and live to fight another day?

Winston Churchill – 50 years

Format: Pack, stamps. envelope, information card and coin

In 2002, Winston Churchill was voted the greatest Briton of all time in a BBC poll in which over a million people took part. Just what is it about this extraordinary statesman that makes people feel so strongly about him five decades after his death?

Queen Elizabeth II – Diamond Jubilee

Format: Pack, stamps. envelope, information card and coin

In 2012, Queen Elizabeth II celebrates 60 years on the throne. She is the second longest-serving monarch in history, after Queen Victoria, who reigned for 63 years.

HMY Britannia

Format: Sheet, stamps and insert information

The lowering of HM Yacht Britannia’s White Ensign in Portsmouth Dockyard on 11 December 1997 signalled the end of an unbroken succession of Royal Yachts dating back to the reign of King Charles II. For over four decades Britannia played a central role in the reign of Queen Elizabeth II, who travelled across the world and welcomed monarchs, presidents, prime ministers, diplomats and business leaders to the official functions held on board in support of British interests.

Battersea – 150 years

Format: Pack, stamps. envelope, information card and coin

Battersea Dogs & Cats Home was established by a Victorian animal welfare campaigner; by the 1890s it was taking in around 40,000 stray dogs every year. Happily, there are far fewer lost or abandoned dogs today, but the Home’s founding principles remain the same: never turn away a dog or cat in need of help, and never put down a healthy animal that could be re-homed.

Kew Gardens – 250 years

Format: Pack, stamps. envelope, information card and coin

Throughout its 250 year history, the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew have been many things to many people. From its origin as an eighteenth-century royal playground, Kew grew into a nineteenth-century hub of colonial exploration and commerce before becoming the scientific institution we see today. The international importance of Kew’s work and collections was recognised when it was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2004.

Big Ben – 150 years

Format: Pack, stamps. envelope, information card and coin

In 2009, Big Ben celebrates its 150th anniversary. In 1859 the clock tower was completed, the clock started running and the great bell, Big Ben itself, began its long service chiming the hour. Big Ben has been a constant part of London life ever since. It is an enduring legacy of the pomp and grandeur of Victorian London. It remains a landmark for tourists and a focus for national celebration.

Florence Nightingale – (1820-1910)

Format: Pack, stamps. envelope, information card and coin

Florence Nightingale’s work nursing soldiers injured in the Crimean War turned her into a Victorian celebrity. She was idealised in pictures, poems, songs and prose for the rest of her life, yet her legacy stems from what she learned in the Crimea and what she did with this knowledge on her return.

Battle of Britain (1940)

Format: Sheet, stamps and insert information

The Battle of Britain was a military campaign of the Second World War, in which the Royal Air Force (RAF) defended the United Kingdom (UK) against large-scale attacks by the German Air Force (Luftwaffe). It has been described as the first major military campaign fought entirely by air forces. We designed the commemorative stamp sheet for the Royal Mail.

The Gurkhas (1815-2015)

Format: Sheet, stamps and insert information

The Royal Gurkha Rifles (RGR) is a rifle regiment of the British Army, forming part of the Brigade of Gurkhas. Unlike other regiments in the British Army, RGR soldiers are recruited from Nepal, which is neither a dependent territory of the United Kingdom nor a member of the Commonwealth. The regiment’s motto is Better to die than to be a coward.

The team at Demographik really listen to what we want, which means they tend to get it right first time. When they write for us, their research is meticulous, which is very important for our target audience and their attention to detail in the design, is second to none too. They make what could be a very complex process really easy.
