Winnie the Pooh has been on a very big adventure this week, as he appeared on the UK’s 50p for the very first time, and has even made the headlines!

Coin collectors and Winnie the Pooh fans alike have been eager to get their hands on the first coin in the series of nine. Whilst we only have the designs for the first three, which will all be released individually this year, Change Checkers have already fallen in love with the series.

The coins have been designed by The Walt Disney Company, having taken inspiration by the original illustrations by E.H Shepard in A. A. Milne’s classic story.

*** UPDATE ***

Change Checkers have been voting and the winning Winnie the Pooh 50p design has now been decided!

And the Winnie the Pooh coin which comes out on top is actually the Christopher Robin 50p, taking a huge 46% of the votes! This is a sure indication for how popular this coin is going to be with collectors when it’s released later this year…

In second at 29% is the main man himself, Winnie the Pooh, closely followed by Piglet at 24%.

More details of the Christopher Robin and Piglet 50p coins will follow when they are individually released, but let us know which one is your favourite in the comments.

    As most of us collectors young and old, will remembered mums or dads brother or sister reading these stories to us or the older collectors reading to their children and we all associate with it because it brings back happy memories, which is very nice.
    But once again NO they won’t be entering circulation so NOT a coin to find in your change but another one / three to buy, I do think the mint is setting its self up for a fall.
    Les.

    Would be nice to see any of the new coins in Bournemouth. Still waiting for the lettered 10p coins to show up.

    I like the Christopher Robin coin best out of the 3 as it shows that children who drag their toys around can still love them dearly

      Hi Michael,

      Unfortunately the 2020 series will not be entering circulation. Fingers crossed for the following coins in the series!
