The latest 50p offering from the Royal Mint celebrates 30 years of those lovable Nick Park creations Wallace and Gromit.

Featuring the Latin inscription ‘CASEUS PRAESTANS’, which translates to ‘cracking cheese’, the coin is inspired by Wallace and Gromit’s adventures in the original short film, A Grand Day Out and comes in a variety of precious metal and BU finishes including the colourised silver proof that has proved so popular with the other Children's Character coins.
