London Eye 10th Anniversary – Commemorative Sheet: 10 August 2010

The London Eye celebrates its 10th Anniversary in 2010 and Royal Mail have been working with the owners to produce a Commemorative Sheet to celebrate the event. Since opening in March 2000 Merlin Entertainment’s London Eye has become an iconic landmark and a symbol of modern Britain. It is the UK’s most popular paid for visitor attraction with some 3.5 million people enjoying
the flight experience every year.

Royal Mail have said that these commemorative sheets will be used "... to mark anniversaries that never quite made it into the stamp programme." They are A4 in size (210 x 297mm) similar to the Smilers Sheets sold at Stampex, and those commissioned by businesses.   

The Royal Mail Commemorative Sheets consist of 10 x 1st class stamps, with commemorative labels and a commemorative border.  Because these sheets are sold at a premium over face value they will not be listed in most stamp catalogues, but we understand they will be listed in the Smilers Catalogue under the 'Commemorative Sheet' heading.
