BRAND NEW Winnie the Pooh 50p Series Released – could these be the most sought-after 50ps yet?

“It isn’t much good having anything exciting, if you can’t share it with somebody.” said Winnie the Pooh


In 2020, The Royal Mint announced a brand new 9-coin 50p collection celebrating the beloved Winnie the Pooh books!

The final three coins in the Winnie the Pooh 50p Collection are set to be issued this year, with the FIRST of the 2022 series being issued TODAY, celebrating the world-famous, Eeyore.

2022 UK Eeyore 50p

2022 UK Eeyore 50p from The Royal Mint's Winnie the Pooh 50p Collection.
Featuring a design of the original illustrations by E. H. Shephard from A. A. Milne's books.

The inscription 'Eeyore' appears, with a bumble bee beneath - the motif of the collection.

The clever, brilliant, and witty Eeyore has JUST joined his friends in the Winnie the Pooh 50p collection, with his tail firmly attached!

Featuring a design taken from E. H. Shepard’s original illustrations, this 50p shows the loveable, old, grey stuffed donkey, just as we remember him from A. A. Milne’s books.

Although famous for his melancholic nature, Eeyore’s loyalty always wins the hearts of his friends from Hundred Acre Wood, especially when he loses his tail.

And today, he’s winning over the hearts of collectors up and down the country with this brand new 50p!

Certain to rival the popularity of the previous Winnie the Pooh 50p coins, this brand new coin has been issued in Brilliant Uncirculated quality.

2021 Tigger, Owl, and Winnie the Pooh and Friends 50p coins

Last year’s additions to the Winnie the Pooh 50p Collection saw Owl and Tigger join their friends from Hundred Acre Wood on the 50p.

2021 UK Winnie the Pooh 50p coins.

On the design of the Tigger 50p, we see the bouncy character hopping around just as he does in E. H. Shepard’s original illustrations – on all four legs!

Sitting tall and proud on his 50p, Owl can be seen with quill and paper at the ready. Always on hand to share his advice (even when it may not be wanted!), Owl is the wisest inhabitant of Hundred Acre Wood.

We also saw all the main characters from A. A. Milne‘s classic tale feature on one 50p together. The Winnie the Pooh and Friends 50p proved a huge hit with coin collectors and fans of the books too!

2020 Winnie the Pooh, Christopher Robin, and Piglet 50p Coins

The first three coins in the series feature designs of Winnie the Pooh, Christopher Robin, and Piglet and were some of the most sought-after coins of the year!

2020 UK Winnie the Pooh 50p coins.

First in the series we saw Winnie the Pooh himself, just as we remember him, with a reverse design by The Walt Disney Company which features an original illustration from the Winnie the Pooh storybooks by E.H. Shepard.

Following closely behind we see Pooh’s most-trusted companion and friend, Christopher Robin, who featured on the second 50p in the 2020 series! Concluding the 2020 series, the character with the biggest heart in all of Hundred Acre Wood, Piglet, made his UK 50p debut.

The Story Behind the Classic

Winnie the Pooh was a collection of short stories first published in 1926 by A.A. Milne, for his son, Christopher Robin.

Most of Christopher Robin’s real life toys were the inspiration for A.A. Milne’s characters, but most significantly his favourite teddy bear which Winnie the Pooh himself is based on!

Alongside Winnie the Pooh, the fictional Hundred-Acre-Wood is inhabited by:

  • The timid but sometimes brave, Piglet
  • The glum but loveable donkey, Eeyore
  • The bouncy, one-of-a-king, Tigger
  • The loving and gentle, Kanga and her baby Roo
  • The terribly organised Rabbit,
  • The wise, old, Owl, and
  • The scary, honey-stealing Heffalumps!

The timeless and universal appeal of this silly old bear is unparalleled. He’s featured in 3 books, various film adaptations, and much much more.

And now we see the best-loved characters from the books feature together on the nation’s best-loved coin, the 50p.

Could these 50p coins become the most sought-after issues?

We’ve seen some incredible character 50ps in the past, which have been a world-wide hit with collectors.

In 2019, to mark the 20th Anniversary of Julia Donaldson’s much-loved children’s book The Gruffalo®, a new 50p was issued.

This coin was so popular that the silver-proof version completely SOLD OUT at the Royal Mint within 12 hours of its release, making it the fastest selling and most popular 50p ever. That’s a 50p sold every 2 seconds! 

We’ve also seen the huge popularity of the Beatrix Potter 50ps, issued to celebrate the life and work of Beatrix Potter and the 150th Anniversary of her birth.

These coins were so popular amongst collectors, they reached heights that hadn’t been seen since the 2011 Olympic 50p series. Collectors of all ages were racing to add these coins to their collections and to gift them to friends and family.

And now that a new series has been issued featuring an all-time favourite childhood character, could we see these coins becoming even more popular than the likes of the 50ps mentioned above?


This brand new coin is sure to be a hit with coin collectors and Winnie the Pooh fans alike! We certainly can’t wait for the final two Winnie the Pooh 50p coins to be released!

First-Ever UK Dinosaur 50p Series Released!

A brand new United Kingdom 50p series has been announced and the news is so colossal it’s sure to shake the coin collecting community!

2020 UK Dinosauria 50p Series

The new series celebrates the Discovery of Dinosaurs with three brand new 50p coins.

British anatomist Richard Owen proposed the term ‘Dinosauria’ in 1842 and this comprised the first three dinosaurs to be discovered – the Megalosaurus, Iguanodon, and Hylaeosaurus.

Excitingly, this is the FIRST-TIME ever Dinosaurs have featured on UK coinage so we’re very excited by this numismatic first!

What’s more, this new series of 50p coins has been issued in partnership with the Natural History Museum so the coins are sure to be popular with palaeontologists and collectors alike!

So without further delay, let’s take a closer look at the designs of these coins…

Hylaeosaurus 50p

The final coin in the incredibly popular Dinosauria 50p series has JUST been released and features the Hylaeosaurus.

2020 UK Hylaeosaurus CERTIFIED BU 50p

It is estimated this dinosaur was around five metres long, however limited remains have been found of this particular species…

Designer, Robert Nicholls wanted to pay homage to the life-sized Crystal Palace Park Hylaeosaurus sculpture and we think he’s done an amazing job with this truly unique coin design.

This is the final coin in this series and has been officially released today!

So, if you don’t want to miss out on completing the series, then you can secure this brand new 50p to your collection here.

This 50p is available in Gold Proof, Silver Proof and Brilliant Uncirculated Quality.

Iguanodon 50p

The second coin in the incredibly popular Dinosauria 50p series features the Iguanodon.

2020 UK Iguanodon CERTIFIED BU 50p

Distinctively, the Iguanodon had large spikes on their thumbs which you can see clearly in the intricate details of the coin design.

It is thought these spikes could have been used for defence against predators. As Iguanodons were large herbivores, it is unlikely these would have been used for hunting.

This 50p is available in Gold Proof, Silver Proof and Brilliant Uncirculated Quality. You can secure this coin to your collection here.

Megalosaurus 50p

The first coin in the series was released in February and features the Megalosaurus Rex.

2020 UK Megalosaurus CERTIFIED BU 50p

‘Megalosaurus’ translates to mean ‘Great Lizard’ and I think it definitely lives up to its name!

Living on earth around 166 million years ago, this great dinosaur could reach up to nine meters in length!

As the first coin in the Dinosaur series, this 50p is available in Gold Proof, Silver Proof and Brilliant Uncirculated Quality.

So there we have it! A good look at the brand new United Kingdom 50p series celebrating the Discovery of Dinosaurs.

As this is the first time Dinosaurs have ever featured on UK coinage, the coins have been issued in partnership with the Natural History Museum, AND they are brand new UK 50ps (the most collected coin in the country!) we’re certain this series is going to be immensely popular with collectors.
