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 today, for the first time in the UK, we see the best-loved characters from the books feature together on the nation’s best-loved coin, the 50p.

This brand new coin has been issued in Superior Brilliant Quality for JUST £4.50 (+p&p) and a range of other specifications.

Could this become the most sought-after 50p ever?

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 brand new series has just been released 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 next 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.
