Now that the Winnie the Pooh 50p Collection has concluded, with the 2022 UK Winnie the Pooh and Friends 50p, we wanted to know what your favourite design is!
And the results are in!
Coming out on top spot is the 2022 Winnie the Pooh and Friends 50p, taking 31% of the votes!
Issued in 2022, this coin features a design of Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Piglet, and Eeyore, just as we remember them from A. A. Milne’s original books. The charming original illustrations from E. H. Shepard feature on all the 50p coins in the Winnie the Pooh coin collection.
These 50ps have been some of the most popular and in-demand coins of recent years, with thousands of collectors missing out on securing them in precious metal specifications.
Furthermore, the 2020 Winnie the Pooh, Christopher Robin, and Piglet 50p coins are no longer available at The Royal Mint, in any specifications.
Change Checker has a limited number of the 2020 Winnie the Pooh 50p coins remaining for collectors.

Fill the gaps in your Winnie the Pooh 50p collection!
In 2020, The Royal Mint announced a brand new 9-coin 50p collection celebrating the beloved Winnie the Pooh books!
The series saw the loveable old bear, and his friends from Hundred Acre Wood, feature on 50p coins from 2020, through to 2022.
But as the final coin in the series is set to be issued soon, we’re going to tell you everything you need to know about the Winnie the Pooh 50p series…
Demand drives sell-outs
Despite the series starting in 2020, the demand for the Winnie the Pooh 50p coins is so high, that the 2022 Eeyore 50p sold out within just HOURS of issue at The Royal Mint.
In fact, this coin was so popular that some collectors were even prepared to pay over retail price on the secondary market site, eBay.
Whilst it’s important to remember that anyone can list anything on secondary market sites, for whatever price they wish, this sold listing confirms that there is serious appetite for the Winnie the Pooh 50p coins.
Reverse designs by The Walt Disney Company
First in the series we saw Winnie the Pooh himself, just as we remember him.
The coin’s reverse design was produced by The Walt Disney Company which features an original illustration from A. A. Milne’s Winnie the Pooh storybooks by E.H. Shepard.
Sitting alongside an overturned pot of honey, Winnie the Pooh can be seen gazing at a bumblebee – because as you know, where there’s honey, there’s bees…
This was the first time Winnie the Pooh had featured on a UK coin and it was so popular that all 18,000 Silver Proof 50p coins sold out in LESS THAN 12 HOURS.
The timeless and universal appeal of this silly old bear and his friends is unparalleled. He’s featured in 3 books, various film adaptations, and much much more.
The first book was published on the 14th October 1926 and was an instant hit – selling 35,000 copies in the U.K. and over 150,000 copies in the U.S.
In fact, so popular is the book that it was translated in over 50 languages, including Catalan, Thai, Esperanto, and Latin.
