from
£31.00
To celebrate 50 years since the release of the first Mr Men and Little Miss book, The Royal Mint have struck a special commemorative coin series. The first coin to be minted depicts Mr Happy, who was the third book in the Mr Men series and was published in August 1971. Rodger Hargreaves was the author of the Mr Men and Little Miss books until his death 1988, after which his son Adam took up the mantle. Adam was specially commissioned by The Royal Mint to design the coloured reverse of this UK coin, and he brilliantly recreates Mr Happy smiling with the hills of Happyland in the background. On the obverse side of the coin, The Queen's effigy is seen as designed by Jody Clark. This UK coin is housed in a protective capsule, which is fitted into a limited edition Royal Mint slipcase. Only 15,000 sets are available in the limited edition presentation. The coin itself weighs 28.28 grams, has a diameter of 38.61 millimetres and is struck in cupro-nickel to a high BUnc standard. A brilliant gift idea for Mr. Men Little Miss fans, with the Britannia Coin Company offering free delivery on all UK orders.
