One cold winter's night, a snowman comes to life

2018 marks the 40th anniversary of the publicaton of "The SnowmanTM" - Raymond Briggs's classic tale for younger readers. Narrated only with pictures, it tells the story of a snowman who comes to life and befriends the little boy who built him. Originally the story conceived as a way to introduce children to mortality, it became a much-loved festive favourite.

The Royal Mint is excited to present these two characters on a UK 50p coin for the very first time. The boy and the snowman soar through the night sky high above Brighton Pier in a wonderfully dynamic design by artist Natasha Ratcliffe, modelled by Robin Shaw, Assistant Director of The Snowman and The Snowdog.

Packaging

The coin comes in a beautiful display sleeve with a vibrant design inspired by heraldry.
