Limited edition Medal Cover will commemorate The 2014 Ryder Cup
• Royal Mail and Post Offices to sell the cover • IPS to supply specialist retailers
A special Medal Cover has been produced to commemorate The 2014 Ryder Cup. The stunning limited edition Medal Cover of 10,000, which has been produced by the Royal Mint, is made of struck metal and contains the Scottish Saltire stamp cancelled with a special postmark, in recognition that this year’s Ryder Cup is being held at Gleneagles in the country that invented the game.
The Ryder Cup Medal Cover will be available to buy from Royal Mail at www.royalmail.com/stamps and at Post Offices across the country from the 23rd September. It will also be available at selected specialist UK retailers thanks to an agreement with retail supplier IPS.
As an official retail distributor for The Royal Mint and official distributor to Royal Mail, IPS has the experience to ensure the fairest distribution of limited edition allocations.
Sanjay Aggarwal of IPS Retail said: “The criteria around being classed as specialist retail is very strict. This ensures that only select types of retail outlet will be selling the product. We are keen to ensure that any retailer signing up to stock The Ryder Cup Commemorative Edition is fully supported to make their retail offering a success. It is an incredibly exciting time for retail over the next few weeks and a great opportunity to boost retail sales.”
This stunning limited edition Medal Cover will include a booklet that explores the history of the Ryder Cup and lists the previous winners and scores. It also includes:
• a feature on the origins and development of the Gleneagles golf course and hotel
• a map of the PGA Centenary Course
• a quote from Samuel Ryder on the first Ryder Cup match held in 1927.
An allocation of The 2014 Ryder Cup Postal Commemorative has been reserved for the retail trade through IPS. Supply is necessarily limited. Pre-ordering information is available.
The Ryder Cup is a biennial golf event contested by teams representing Europe and the United States, with the host venue alternating between the two. It is the most prestigious team event in golf and one of the world’s most compelling sporting contests.
