John McGuinness - The First 20 TT Wins
The extraordinary achievements of the road racing legend John McGuinness are celebrated in this spectacular, limited edition stamp and coin collection from the Isle of Man Post Office. The 'Morecambe Missile' took his first victory around the TT Mountain course in 1999 and in the final race of 2013, a nail-biting Senior TT showdown, he smashed another barrier, securing his 20th win.
To mark that incredible achievement, and the 15th anniversary of his first win, we have produced a stunning stamp sheet, new 50p coin and limited edition collection which is essential for all collectors, as well as every TT fan. The sheet includes two stamps featuring McGuinness in action, along with a collection of colourful photos and complete list of the first 20 TT wins. It is available as part of our limited edition collection, or can be purchased on its own, with free worldwide delivery, presented in a specially-designed holder.
We have also commissioned Pobjoy Mint to create a new Isle of Man 50p commemorating the achievements of John McGuinness. This wonderful coin is also part of our limited edition collection or available individually, with free worldwide delivery, in a wallet or special gift pack. For the true collector, our limited edition booklet collection is a must. It includes a mint condition stamp sheet, the brand new Isle of Man 50p coin, an individually-numbered Special Commemorative Cover postmarked with John's birthday and signed by the great man himself.
It is also a treasure trove of action photos from throughout his career, all supplied by renowned road racing photographer Stephen Davison, who has also written the story of the first 20 TT wins and included full details of McGuinness's TT career so far. There are just 1,000 of these limited collections available, and they are sure to sell quickly, especially with worldwide delivery. - See more at: https://www.iompost.com/stamps-coins/collection/john-mcguinness-the-first-20-tt-wins/#sthash.tUoP73oM.dpuf
