A Celebration in Gold for a Treasured British Bear

2018 marks the 60th anniversary since the first publication, A Bear Called Paddington™. Today, Paddington is a British icon around the world and a firm favourite with children and adults alike. The Royal Mint continues its tradition of honouring Britain’s childhood favourites with two official UK coins celebrating the charming bear that started a new life a long way from home in Darkest Peru.

This exclusive gold Proof edition features Paddington at the station where his British story begins. Every nostalgic detail, from Paddington’s famous duffle coat and battered bush hat, is struck in 22 carat gold and finished to Proof standard. Presented in a wooden case for safekeeping, this gold coin is a beautiful keepsake and lasting gift for fans of Paddington.
