2019 Gruffalo and Mouse 50p Coloured Silver Proof

UK19GRSP 2019 Gruffalo and Mouse 50p Silver Proof Reverse
from
£69.00
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 coin is presented in a smart, colour printed acrylic case and accompanied by a booklet containing additional information about the author and her characters. This coin is one of 30,000 in this format. It comes with its numbered certificate of authenticity and is struck in 8.00 grams of .925 sterling silver with a diameter of 27.30 millimetres.
