2018 RAF 100th Anniversary Sovereign Cover

Code: SOV1801
  • Overview
  • Delivery

The Royal Air Force came into existence on 1 April 1918 when the aviation branches of the Royal Navy and the British Army were merged to form an independent military force. The growing role of airpower in warfare, particularly in the Gret War, was the chief insipration for this move.


To celebrate this significant anniversary we are producing one of our prestigious sovereign covers. The 100 years milestone is marked with the Royal Mail set of stamps cancelled with a special Sopwith Camel pictorial Kingston upon Thames handstamp, location of the Sopwith Aviation Company. Encapsulated above the stamps, in pride of place, is a 2018 gold sovereign for the centennial year. The cover is further enhanced by the 1968 50th anniversary commemorative mounted within an intricate aviation themed border.
Issued in a numbered limited edition of 100 we are sure this edition will prove very popular.
