As of the Royal Proclamation on 24th July 2020, a series of 50p designs, inspired by the classic stories of A.A. Milne, will be issued to celebrate one of the world’s most-loved bears and his friends.
It has been confirmed that there will be three 50p coins issued. The first will feature Winnie the Pooh himself and then later, a Christopher Robin 50p, and a Piglet 50p.
Originally published in 1926, Winnie the Pooh is a story about the adventures of Christopher Robin’s honey-loving teddy bear and his friends Piglet, Tigger, Eeyore, Owl, Kanger, and Rabbit.
