Following the success of A. A. Milne’s first book about Winnie the Pooh, a new and very bouncy friend joined the inhabitants of the Hundred Acre Wood in the book that followed. He’s been a firm favourite with fans ever since and now, as we celebrate 95 years of Winnie the Pooh, Tigger is the final character in 2021 to join our popular UK 50p coin collection.
Featuring one of E. H. Shepard’s original illustrations, we see Tigger bounding along with a friendly bee flying above him – a detail that unites all the coins in the collection.
Struck in 22 carat gold to Proof standard, this is the first time Tigger has featured on his own coin that has been struck by The Royal Mint. Just 525 gold Proof coins are available in this Limited Edition Presentation, each is approved by Buckingham Palace and presented in a case with a beautifully designed booklet all about Tigger.
