In 2020, The Royal Mint revealed a brand new series of 50p coins celebrating the wonderful story of Winnie the Pooh and his friends from Hundred Acre Wood. Nine coins were confirmed for the series and collectors have been so far delighted by six!
The 2020 50p coins featured designs of the main man himself, Winnie the Pooh, his trusted companion, Christopher Robin, and their small but brave friend, Piglet.
The series continued into 2021, this time bringing all of the Hundred Acre Wood inhabitants onto the UK’s most collected coin, with the Winnie the Pooh and Friends 50p, whilst Tigger, and Owl also got their own special 50p debuts.
*** UPDATE ***
The bounciest, pounciest, and jumpiest character in all of Hundred Acre Wood has been voted as YOUR favourite in the 2021 Winnie the Pooh 50p series!
Tigger is one of the most popular Winnie the Pooh characters and has a fan base that spans across generations and across the globe, so there’s no surprises he’s taken 49% of the votes!

Winnie the Pooh has been on a very big adventure this week, as he appeared on the UK’s 50p for the very first time, and has even made the headlines!
Coin collectors and Winnie the Pooh fans alike have been eager to get their hands on the first coin in the series of nine. Whilst we only have the designs for the first three, which will all be released individually this year, Change Checkers have already fallen in love with the series.
The coins have been designed by The Walt Disney Company, having taken inspiration by the original illustrations by E.H Shepard in A. A. Milne’s classic story.
*** UPDATE ***
Change Checkers have been voting and the winning Winnie the Pooh 50p design has now been decided!
And the Winnie the Pooh coin which comes out on top is actually the Christopher Robin 50p, taking a huge 46% of the votes! This is a sure indication for how popular this coin is going to be with collectors when it’s released later this year…
In second at 29% is the main man himself, Winnie the Pooh, closely followed by Piglet at 24%.
More details of the Christopher Robin and Piglet 50p coins will follow when they are individually released, but let us know which one is your favourite in the comments.
