Crescent Lodge has created packaging and information design for a series of limited edition, collectible solid silver ingots in the shape of landmark stamps of the Victorian period. The first of these, unveiled by Royal Mail this month, is the famous Penny Black (1840). This will be followed by the Embossed Shilling (1847) in June; the Halfpenny Red (1870) in August; the Penny Lilac (1881) in October; the Five Pounds Orange (1882) in December; and by the Jubilee Shilling (1887) in February 2004. Packaging consists of a collection box inside which sit six slipcases, each featuring a pattern based on the design of the stamp it houses. According to Crescent Lodge designer Gloria Rodriguez, the group’s biggest challenge was the ‘depth and breadth of research – into packaging solutions, Royal Mail heritage and the Victorian era as a whole’.
