Bringing London 2020 to you

A message from our CEO

Dear collector,

Everybody at Stanley Gibbons is extremely disappointed not to have the opportunity to meet with you in person at London 2020 and we sincerely hope that you are keeping well during this unprecedented period in human history.

While doing all we can to protect our colleagues, we have been working extremely hard to bring you plenty of things to do and read since the outbreak and we have more to come during what would have been the week of London 2020.

We are also eagerly anticipating the opening of our new shop and showroom which was mere weeks away from completion before COVID-19 struck. While we won’t be seeing you at London 2020, we very much look forward to welcoming everybody to the Strand when things start to get back to normal.

All of our departments remain open and my colleagues have very much enjoyed speaking with many of you through this period. If there is anything we can do to help you in your hobby, please do get in touch with us.
