One cold winter’s night, magic is in the air

On a cold winter’s morning, a little boy wakes up to find a blanket of snow as far as the eye can see. He builds a snowman in the garden complete with coal for buttons and an orange for a nose, dressed with a scarf and hat. When night falls, the snowman comes to life and a magical adventure begins, but wonder turns to sadness. The following morning, the boy rushes downstairs to find his new friend has melted.

Originally conceived as a way to introduce children to the concept of mortality, the story of The Snowman has become a much-loved festive favourite. As this classic tale turns 40, The Royal Mint is delighted to celebrate this milestone with a special silver coin. Featuring a design by Natasha Radcliffe, and modelled by Robin Shaw, Assistant Director of The Snowman and the Snowdog, the little boy and the snowman are brought to life, soaring through the moonlit sky.

  • Each coin is cased in a beautiful printed acrylic block with delicate snow falling all around.
  • The gift box contains a fold-out booklet, featuring exclusive illustrations from Robin Shaw – Assistant Director of The Snowman and the Snowdog.
  • A Limited Edition Presentation of 15,000 – we anticipate high demand.
  • Colour printing recalls the charm of the original illustrations and TV animation.
  • The first festive colour-printed coin from The Royal Mint.
  • The first colour printed acrylic block from The Royal Mint – a perfect Christmas decoration.
  • Order in time for Christmas to avoid disappointment.
