Years of issue:
To celebrate the festive season, The Royal Mint has released the first ever commemorative UK Christmas 50p coin, issued to mark the 40th anniversary of the publication of Raymond Briggs’ much-loved festive tale The Snowman™.
Designed by Natasha Ratcliffe, the new coin depicts the boy and the snowman flying through the night sky above Brighton Pier.
