First published in 1978, Raymond Briggs’ The Snowman™ has become an endearing winter’s tale that endures to this very day. The Royal Mint has commemorated the beloved story over the past few years due to its unwavering popularity. The story’s film adaption, which was released in 1984 and features an appearance from David Bowie in the introduction, is broadcast on Christmas Eve on Channel 4 every year. Much like the tale itself, which has become a quintessential part of Christmas traditions in Britain, this UK 50p coin is an embodiment of the festive spirit. With an original design by the award-winning illustrator and animator Robin Shaw, who also served as Assistant Director of the film adaptation’s sequel, The Snowman and The Snowdog™, this coin is the perfect gift guaranteed to make a special friend or loved one smile.
