Britain's favourite well-meaning bear from Darkest Peru joins his friend Mr Gruber on a day trip to the storied Tower of London, where he learns that he has something in common with the site's famous ravens (they both like marmalade). Thanks to a letter from his friends at The Royal Mint, Paddington also learns that for many years the Tower of London was the home of British coinage. You can find out more in Paddington’s scrapbook, part of the packaging that accompanies this special coin.

This gold Proof edition of the coin features Paddington enjoying one of his beloved marmalade sandwiches (perhaps from the emergency stock he keeps beneath his hat) outside the almost 1,000-year-old Tower. A beautiful keepsake of childhood nostalgia, the Proof edition offers unparalleled quality and precision in its design.
