The Royal Mint has completed its popular Winnie the Pooh and Friends coin collection, inspired by Disney, with the launch of a collectible 50 pence featuring Pooh and some of his closest friends.

The final coin in the treasured nine-coin collection, the new 50p features a woodland scene with the lovable bear and his Hundred Acre Wood friends Tiger, Eeyore, and Piglet. The design is inspired by the original illustrations of E. H. Shepard and has been brought to life using British craftsmanship and innovative color printing technology at The Royal Mint.

The Royal Mint’s designer Daniel Thorne worked with Shepard’s timeless illustrations for the collection, which also sees Winnie the Pooh, Owl, Tigger, Christopher Robin, Piglet, Eeyore and Kanga and Roo miniaturized on the reverse side of the coin. Adding an original twist, Thorne included a signature bee motif to the classic designs, uniting each of the coins in the Winnie the Pooh and Friends collection.

Collectors can purchase the new 50p design individually and as part of the Winnie the Pooh and Friends collection in gold, silver, base metal, and special color edition, from today at The Royal Mint website.

“Coin collecting is a popular hobby, and the Winnie the Pooh and Friends 50p collection is one which unites generations of coin collectors to share their enjoyment. Based on the original illustrations of E H Shepard, the designs evoke childhood memories for people of all ages, and we are absolutely thrilled with the final design which combines Pooh and his pals as they embark on their final adventure on official UK coin,” said Rebecca Morgan, Director of Collector Services
