From Storybook to Coin
Royal Mint celebrate the world of Winnie the Pooh with a new 50p coin series
Loveable Winnie the Pooh is the latest family favourite to be brought to life on an official United Kingdom coin series – joining some of our most popular releases to date. This brand-new collection of 50p coins is a nostalgic reminder for fans of the ‘silly old bear’ and his friends, inspired by the classic stories of A. A. Milne and featuring the original illustrations of E. H. Shepard. This is the first time the world of Winnie the Pooh has been celebrated on coins struck by The Royal Mint, and these official UK coins have been approved by Buckingham Palace.
The series will feature nine coins celebrating the inhabitants of the Hundred Acre Wood, with three released in 2020, featuring Winnie the Pooh, Christopher Robin and Piglet, and six more over the following two years.
To celebrate the launch of the Winnie the Pooh and Friends 2020 coin collection, the Royal Mint are giving away a prize bundle to one lucky winner.
