“Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart” said Winnie the Pooh.

Well, it seems this silly old bear is right once more, as Change Checker has just heard that a brand new Winnie the Pooh 50p coin series is set to be released this year, and the news has already taken up all of the room in our hearts!

*** UPDATE ***

It has been confirmed that the BRAND NEW Winnie the Pooh 50p will be released Wednesday 23rd September!

Remember to sign-up for updates using the form at the bottom of this blog to stay up to date.

As of the Royal Proclamation on 24th July 2020, a series of 50p designs, inspired by the classic stories of A.A. Milne, will be issued to celebrate one of the world’s most-loved bears and his friends.

It has been confirmed that there will be three 50p coins issued. The first will feature Winnie the Pooh himself and then later, a Christopher Robin 50p, and a Piglet 50p.

Originally published in 1926, Winnie the Pooh is a story about the adventures of Christopher Robin’s honey-loving teddy bear and his friends Piglet, Tigger, Eeyore, Owl, Kanger, and Rabbit.

Since then, Winnie the Pooh has featured in over 11 films, 11 television programmes, 4 different books, and has become a worldwide collectable item.

Whilst the designs of the upcoming 50p coins are currently top-secret, we can’t wait to see this loveable bear, his loving owner Christopher Robin and adorable friend Piglet, come to life once more, this time on the UK’s most collected coin.

I’m sure you’ll be just as excited as I am to hear which £5 coin themes have been announced, as there really are some fantastic coins due to be released in 2020!

British Red Cross £5

The Royal Proclamation issued on 22nd May 2020, confirms that a British Red Cross £5 coin will be issued this year.

We can assume this coin will be issued in celebration of the British Red Cross’ 150th birthday, as it’s establishment date ‘1870’ is said to feature as in inscription on the coin.

Whilst the actual design remains top secret, The Royal Proclamation hints the coin will feature “a cross set against a background of the British Isles and a series of lines symbolising the globe.”

The official motto of the British Red Cross, “The Power of Kindness” will also feature.

The End of the Second World War £5

Earlier this year we saw the release of the incredibly popular Victory in Europe Day £2 coin but it looks like 75th anniversary celebrations will be continuing with the release of a brand new End of Second World War £5 coin.

The coin is said to feature the words ‘War‘ and ‘Peace‘ accompanied by the inscription ‘The End of the Second World War.’

If the popularity of the 2020 Victory in Europe £2 is anything to go by, we can expect this £5 to be a real hit with collectors.

Every year, to commemorate Remembrance Day and the end of the First World War, The Royal Mint issues a brand new £5 coin. As of the Royal Proclamation on 24th June, it has been confirmed that a new 2020 Remembrance Day £5 coin will be issued later this year.

Although the final design hasn’t been revealed yet, the reverse is said to feature the silhouette of a First World War soldier formed by poppies accompanied by the inscription, “Lest We Forget 11 November 2020”.
