A little mouse with a large tale captured in silver

Voted the nation’s favourite bedtime story, The Gruffalo is as popular today as when it was released 20 years ago. Printed over 14.5 million times in more than 84 languages, the release of the first Gruffalo coin proved just how popular the loveable monster is, with both the silver and gold Proof coins selling out within hours.

Now you have another chance to catch a Gruffalo on a new silver Proof 50p coin, but this time he has company. In another UK first, Mouse joins the monster, and both have been captured in full colour – highlighting every tusk, tooth and whisker. The coin comes in a beautifully decorated acrylic block that places the pair in the deep, dark wood.
