1973 £1 Machin & Penny Black Gold Definitive Stamp Replicas
In 1973, Hallmark Replicas issued a number of 7p replica stamps in 22 carat gold, probably struck by the Royal Mint in London. These medallions reproduce the design of the definitive £1 stamps issued in 1973, and the famous Penny Black, the original definitive British stamp.
Gold stamp replicas are a form of medal or medallion. Although not VAT exempt, they can be an interesting way to invest in gold at the same time as acquiring historical, artistic, or antique artefacts.
Collecting Gold Stamps
A number of medallists have marketed replica stamps in gold, and other metals, in order to market them at stamp collectors (philatelists). Some will undoubtedly have been bought originally by stamp collectors, but others will have been purchased by non-philatelists.
