It’s been 95 years since Winnie the Pooh and his good friends in the Hundred Acre Wood first took their place on the family bookshelf. The much-loved storybooks and characters have been a favourite at bedtime ever since, thanks to the perfect pairing of A. A. Milne’s storytelling and E. H. Shepard’s charming illustrations.
Now, we’re bringing the inhabitants of the Hundred Acre Wood together on a UK coin to celebrate the 95th anniversary of the first publication of Winnie-the-Pooh. Such an important occasion calls for something extra special and the gang have been captured in full colour on this Brilliant Uncirculated coin. It also makes it easy to spot the buzzing bee that unites all of the coins in the Winnie the Pooh and Friends UK 50p Coin Collection.
There are just 45,000 Brilliant Uncirculated colour-printed coins in this Limited Edition Presentation and they are only available directly from The Royal Mint. Each coin comes in a pop-up booklet, making it a lovely gift to share with the little ones in your life.
