Gruffalo 50p Coming soon

Posted on Mon, 11 February 2019 by Phil Mussell - General News, Coin News

It appears the latest 50p coin from the Royal Mint will feature the Gruffalo, Julia Donaldson's scary but delightful monster who first appeared in 1999, and will be available from February 19. We aren't sure whether this will go into circulation like the Beatrix Potter and Paddington coins or remain for collectors only (as with the Snowman just before Christmas) - we'll keep you posted!
