Titanic Centennial - 2012 Mint Sheet of 4 Stamps & Commemorative Sheet

At the time of its launch in 1912, it was the largest ocean liner ever built. Packed with over 2200 passengers and crew, including immigrants as well as some of the world’s wealthiest people, it struck an iceberg five days into its maiden voyage and sank in the cold North Atlantic, taking 1500 lives with it. This set pays tribute to the 100th anniversary of the tragic disaster and shows the Titanic under construction and its launch from Southampton, and includes some stunning photographs showing the immense scale of this massive ship.
