“Bouncing is What Tiggers do Best…”
Meet Tigger – the fun-loving character who joins the gang in the second Winnie the Pooh storybook, The House at Pooh Corner. When Tigger bounced into the Hundred Acre Wood, Pooh Bear and his friends took him into their homes and their hearts, and he remains one of the most popular characters from the stories. Tigger appears on the sixth coin in our Winnie the Pooh and Friends 50p Coin Collection. The very energetic friend has been captured in one of E. H. Shepard’s original illustrations along with the buzzy bee that unites all the coins in the series.
