On the 250th anniversary of William Wordsworth, born on 7th April 1770, exactly 250 years to the day of the stamp issue, this striking pack celebrates the renowned poet and his romantic poetry with a set of ten stamps. William Wordsworth is regarded as having launched the ‘Romantic era’ of British poetry, he was Poet Laureate and remains one of the our most popular poets. This William Wordsworth Brilliant Uncirculated Coin Cover is just a part of the range that celebrates the work of key romantic poets.

The stunning William Wordsworth Brilliant Uncirculated Coin Cover, written by Jonathan Bate, contains the full set of ten Romantic Poets stamps cancelled with a special Cockermouth handstamp, and provides an insightful overview and brief timeline of Wordsworth’s life. The cover includes the Brilliant Uncirculated £5 coin, with the obverse design featuring a quote from Wordsworth inspired by his famed love of nature; ‘Nature never did betray the heart that loved her’. The edge inscription features one of many of Wordsworth’s inspirational lines, from the poem of the same name, I wondered lonely as a cloud. Individually numbered, this is a limited edition of 10,000.

The ten special first class stamps featured on this cover are:

  • 1st Class ‘The Progress of Rhyme’ by John Clare
