What’s a Gruffalo? Why, don’t you know? The British children’s book by Julia Donaldson turned twenty in 2019 and this 50p is one of two released by The Royal Mint to mark the occasion. Illustrated by Axel Scheffler, the story follows a mouse through the woods as he convinces predators not to eat him, claiming to know the fearsome ‘Gruffalo’. After evading a fox, an owl and a snake, the mouse is shocked to meet the real Gruffalo. The picture book, first published in the UK in 1999, has now sold more than 13 million copies and was adapted into an Oscar and BAFTA nominated animated film, produced by Magic Light Pictures. It’s the title character that appears on the reverse of this coin with his yellow eyes, horns and tusks. The words ’The GRUFFALO’ appear above. It’s an image that will be instantly recognisable to parents and children, enhanced with vibrant colour printing. The other side of this 2019 Fifty Pence coin features Jody Clark’s portrait of Her Majesty the Queen. This Gruffalo 20th anniversary 50p is struck in 8.00 grams of .925 sterling silver. Finished to The Royal Mint’s finest proof standard, its enclosed in a decorative acrylic display case. This it can be handled without damaging the collectible coin which is one of just 30,000 made. We’re offering this Gruffalo Fifty Pence with its original box, a commemorative booklet and a numbered certificate of authenticity.
