Making his debut appearance on an official UK coin, The Royal Mint welcomes Paddington Bear to its ranks.
Based on the smash-hit bestselling books by Michael Bond, this 2018 issue from The Royal Mint is a heartwarming and nostalgic tribute to one of Britain's most cherished literary creations.
Do you remember when your first read Paddington Bear? First published in 1958, the books were an instant success, with the innocent charm of the little bear appealing to readers of all ages.
Now, 60 years later, The Royal Mint have issued these special anniversary tributes to the world's favourite bear. Available in cupro-nickel, silver, and gold, the 50p coin's design features Paddington back where it all began - newly arrived from Darkest Peru, and perched on his suitcase at Paddington Station.
David Knapton's beautiful design ties together the past and present of Paddington, conveying his enduring popularity with the little bear sitting in front of a recognisably modern-day train.
Dressed in his unmistakable blue mackintosh and red hat (realised on the silver edition with vibrant selective colour), around Paddington's neck is a label which implores the reader to "Please Look After This Bear" - will you?
The reverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II as designed by Ian Rank-Broadley, as well as ELIZABETH II D.G, REG. F. D, and 50 PENCE.
The gold and silver coins are housed in a classic Royal Mint presentation case, while the cupro-nickel is stored in a clear acrylic case. Both are ideal for keeping the coins safe and untarnished for years to come.
A treasured British classic to cherish forever, these coin are guaranteed to sell out fast, so don't miss out!
