A brand-new UK 50p is now available, marking the 10th anniversary of the first premiere of ‘The Snowman™ and The Snowdog‘ film.
The critically acclaimed animated sequel, ‘The Snowman™ and The Snowdog‘, suitably premiered on Channel 4 on Christmas Eve, 2012.
It was created with the late Raymond Briggs’ blessing and subsequently, in 2015, a book of the film was published by Puffin, bringing words to the story for the first time.
And, for the first time ever The Snowdog joins The Snowman™ on a UK 50p!
Interestingly for collectors, The Snowman™ and The Snowdog 50p features a design by award-winning illustrator Robin Shaw.
As well as being an accredited designer, Shaw also acted as assistant director on the 2012 film!
2022 UK The Snowman™ and The Snowdog
Undeniably, Snowman™ coins are some of the most popular out there, with previous issues selling out remarkably fast.
Three out of the now five Snowman™ 50ps are also no longer available at The Royal Mint, meaning you need to act fast to get your hands on this new coin.
And considering the brand new UK Snowman™ and The Snowdog 50p is available the same year as Raymond Briggs’ passing, it is comparatively the most poignant yet.
It’s also guaranteed to be one of the last UK coins with Queen Elizabeth II’s portrait on the obverse. This is sure to drive demand for this brand new 50p…
As the UK’s only official Christmas coin, it is the perfect festive gift, that’s certainly going to warm the hearts of every collector (and every dog lover) out there!
