Stamp & Coin Mart Free Doctor Who Stamp Postcard Set

stamp-coin-martFree Doctor Who Stamp Postcard Set

Order your copy Here.

Stamp & Coin Mart are giving away the FULL SET of 17 Doctor Who stamp postcards, each showing a stamp from the forthcoming Doctor Who issue as well as a selection of enemies. The fantastic free gift comes courtesy of Royal Mail.

Also in the May issue…

We take a look at the appearance of the Penny Black in May, 1840 The arrival of the 1d black is now celebrated around the world as a defining moment in postal history, but what was the reaction to the 1d stamp at the time?

In another fascinating feature we find out what the newspapers, people and politicians thought of the new invention.

One man who may have expected more credit for the postage stamp was James Chalmers, who some argue came up with the idea before Rowland Hill. In another fascinating article we examine the ongoing debate on who invented the postage stamp and assess whether some innovators have been written out of the history books.

Bringing GB stamps up to date, we examine the latest ‘Great Britons’ to be honoured by Royal Mail and bring you more, exclusive details of the highly anticipated Doctor Who stamps

Elsewhere in the packed issue, we provide a comprehensive guide to the stamps of Vatican City, take a look at science fiction on stamps, and look at the intriguing Roman coins of Gallineus, making May’s Stamp & Coin Mart another must-read issue

      Phew!…Only noticed this Postcard set with this magazine a few days ago on this very website. So I went up to my local WH Smith and managed to buy one of the two copies left on the shelf! Woo Hoo! So as well as having the stamps themselves I also now have the lovely postcard collection as well! Plus when you consider the set of cards with the magazine only cost £3.50 I feel I’ve got myself a bargain. The price is nearer £10.00 upwards for this postcard set online!

    Can i get this in Spar etc

    • booboo

      April 14th, 2013 - 8:03pm

      only the big newsagents seem to have it

      You can get the magazine from most WH Smiths, from Sainsbury’s and from independent newsagents.

      You can also order direct from the Stamp & Coin Mart website:

      There are 17 cards in teh pack – the entire set of eleven Doctors, five enemies and one postcard showing the enemies ‘miniature sheet’ of stamps.

    I got mine from WH Smiths today, it had 16 postcards in, the eleven doctors and the 5 monster stamps.

  • Sam Bentley

    I got these today. I wouldn’t say they were worth the £3.50 but still worth getting!

      To buy these postcards from the Post Office cost £7.65, and there were not enough to go around. I could not get a set from 8 Post Offices I tried. Forbidden Planet are selling sets for £12.99 as are other places.

      I personally think that Stamp & Coin Mart have been exceedingly generous in having a 17 post-card set.

      It is probably the best Doctor Who related free gift there has ever been, and if not, then certainly the most worthwhile.

      I’m delighted with with mine for £3.50, especially as they were over £7 from RM and they are sold out anyway.

      Good read about them in the magazine as well

    • Sam Bentley

      April 13th, 2013 - 5:38pm

      Well they aren’t the actually the stamps. But I guess ypur right… they’re lovely collectors items. I am going to get a few sets of the actual stamps some point.

    • booboo

      i ordered my presentation pack 3 weeks ago and have had nothing, no reply to my emails enquiring where they are either.

      Glad it’s not just me booboo! I got my stamps from the Post Office in the store I work in, along with the postcards and the first day covers. Because it’s not a crown Post Office they weren’t stocking the prestige packs so I ordered one from Royal Mail on 26th March… had nothing in the post at all yet. Got my first day covers back about two weeks after I sent them, which was quite a lengthy wait, but I thought I’d have the prestige pack by now considering the site said up to 5 working days. It’s been about 15 now. :l

    • booboo

      April 13th, 2013 - 2:57pm

  • Matthew Bazza

    April 13th, 2013 - 12:01pm

    Will they have it in a big shopping Center like Meadowhall in WHSmiths

    • The Silent Silent

      April 13th, 2013 - 4:55pm

    This looks cool for stamp collectors who like Dr who.

    My local WHSmith has several copies. Picked up one today. £3.50 and comes with the full 17 postcards despite what the top of the magazine says. Also has a feature on the stamps release inside.


    April 13th, 2013 - 9:55am

    I’ve already got this

    April 12th, 2013 - 7:15pm

    How much

    • The Flying Shark

      April 12th, 2013 - 8:06pm

      The barcode in the corner says £1.50.

    • drjakeyoung

      April 12th, 2013 - 8:20pm

      are you sure it says £1.50 and not £3.50?

    • Kroton

      April 12th, 2013 - 8:34pm

      It’s 3.50 plus 1.50 postage when ordering online.

    • DavidH

      April 12th, 2013 - 8:40pm

      Yeah, it is £3.50. I’d get it myself if I didn’t already have the actual stamps

    April 12th, 2013 - 6:54pm

    Just a point but your article says 17 postcards but the magazine covers says 11!

    • booboo

      April 12th, 2013 - 8:49pm

      i think you do get 17

  • Emma

    April 12th, 2013 - 6:46pm

    I’d have thought this kind of magazine would be available in a specialist magazine shop like WH Smith as they cover this kind of this. I can’t see any regular supermarket or corner shop having it as its a specialist magazine and only usually stamp collectors would be buying it!

  • Matthew Bazza

    April 12th, 2013 - 5:30pm

    Is it out in the uk and should they have it in a local newsagents

    • booboo

      April 12th, 2013 - 5:31pm

      its a specialist subject so you might only find it in large newsagents

  • Mr Byzantium

    April 12th, 2013 - 5:28pm

    • booboo

      April 12th, 2013 - 5:29pm

  • drjakeyoung

    April 12th, 2013 - 4:51pm

    who is that in the video booboo?

    • booboo

      April 12th, 2013 - 4:52pm

      the editor of the magazine

    • drjakeyoung

      April 12th, 2013 - 4:54pm

      ah cool, because i cant watch the video at the moment, i thought it was you!

  • wolfie

    April 12th, 2013 - 4:49pm

    When does this issue hit the shops please?

    • booboo

      April 12th, 2013 - 4:49pm

    • wolfie

      April 12th, 2013 - 4:59pm

    April 12th, 2013 - 4:47pm

    Does it come free with the postcards inside or with it, or do you have to send off for them?


    • Doctor Who Crazy Ross

      April 12th, 2013 - 4:48pm

      I’m definitely getting it, but it’s just for those beautiful postcards.

    • booboo

      April 12th, 2013 - 4:48pm

      They are inside as far as i know but i have just ordered mine over the internet.

    • Doctor Who Crazy Ross

      April 12th, 2013 - 4:50pm

      Okay thanks Boo Boo, I’m going to the shops now to see if there is any copys of it. If there is I’ll scan them and email you with the pics.

    • Doctor Who Crazy Ross

      April 12th, 2013 - 5:34pm

      awh, Went to 3 different shops, and not one had a copy in… I don’t think they are out yet, and the man behind the counter said ‘We’re not due a delivery until monday so…’

    • booboo

      April 12th, 2013 - 5:38pm

      Mmm, their facebook page says its on sale from today

      I have ordered online to make sure

    • Doctor Who Crazy Ross

      April 12th, 2013 - 5:41pm

      I know. My local Co-op didn’t have it in, it only had the kiddies magazines, newspapers, the motorbike/ok/hello/grown up magazines and sticker albums. and my two local newsagents had the same, but a bigger variety of magazines and neither had this stamp magazine in. The only stamp magazine was ‘The Stamp Magazine’… 🙁 Bit disappointed but never mind… I’ll try again tomorrow.
