Collection of 25 stamps in 925 silver, plated in 22 carat gold.

“Encuentro de Dos Mundos” Collection, 25 silver and gold stamp replicas.

A limited collection of post stamps made in 22-karat gold-plated sterling silver was made between 1988 and 1991. The collection, called “Encuentro de Dos Mundos”, was a foretaste of the celebration of the Fifth Centenary of the Discovery of America. It is a collection of great postal, philatelic and historical value. Nowadays, it is very difficult to come by complete and in a such excellent condition as the lot offered here. The price asked is much lower than the real value of this collection, being a unique opportunity .

This collection was created with the sponsorship of the Museo Postal and by the English company Hallmark Replicas Ltd., who created the “Valores Reales” collection years later with stamps and banknotes in silver and gold. This collection also featured a foreword by S. M. D. Juan Carlos I is in the script of the collection.

This collection’s features can be summarized as follows:

Limited edition of 12,500 collections both for national and international markets, left unused and held by the Museo Postal.

Each game in the collection is composed of 25 sterling silver stamps plated in 22 carat gold and 2.2 mm thick. Each one is engraved on the back with the official contrast from the Spanish State, guaranteeing the purity of the materials used.

The parts production was made possible by an elaborate craft process of the highest quality. Each piece was set in a press of 160 tons of pressure and, finally, it was serrated with a diamond to achieve a perfect reproduction of the original.

The collection is composed of:

25 reproductions in the actual size of stamps from Correos de España on the subject of the New World, made in gold plated sterling silver, entirely new and in perfect condition. Overall weight of the 25 pieces: 724.50 g.

A leather case with a key, stamped in gold and lined by fine velvet inside, with its tray moulded in order to place each piece, in perfect condition. Total weight of the carrying case with all parts: over 2 kilos.


Dimensions: 25.45 x 32.5 cm.
