As we reach the 95th anniversary of the first Winnie-the-Pooh storybook, we’re celebrating the beloved characters that have made bedtime stories so special for generations of readers. Our popular Winnie the Pooh and Friends UK 50p Coin Collection takes you on a nostalgic adventure as we celebrate A. A. Milne’s classic stories of friendship and adventure on a series of UK 50p coins.
Owl is the fifth addition to the collection, which began in 2020, and is captured in one of E. H. Shepard’s original illustrations on a 22 carat gold coin that has been struck to Proof standard. The wise owl is poised to write something terribly important whilst a buzzing bee joins him – a detail that brings together each coin in the collection.
This is the first time all of the friends from the Hundred Acre Wood have appeared together on a UK coin struck by The Royal Mint and just 525 gold Proof coins are available in this Limited Edition Presentation. Each coin comes in a case with a beautifully designed booklet all about the wisest inhabitant of the Hundred Acre Wood.
