2019 Paddington at St Paul's 50p Silver Proof

2019 Paddington at St Pauls 50p
from
£75.00
‘Please look after this bear. Thank you.' It was the kind of label you couldn't possibly ignore and in no time at all things began to happen. Mrs Brown thought of a name for him, Paddington.' More than sixty years later, things continue to happen for the small stowaway from Darkest Peru, Paddington Bear. Michael Bond's colourful character has captured hearts and minds for six decades, since first appearing in the October 1958 book 'A Bear called Paddington.' Bond has written over twenty books detailing the bear's adventures with the Brown family, and the stories have more recently been made into a pair of successful films, starring A list actors alongside the captivating little bear. Part of a series of commemorative coins, this silver proof Fifty Pence features Paddington Bear tipping his hat outside St Paul's Cathedral. The bear is depicted in colour, with his charming red hat and blue duffel coat, while the cathedral exists in outline behind him. It was designed by David Knapton, based on the original illustrations by Peggy Fortnum. This Paddington Bear Silver Proof fifty pence coin arrives marmalade-free in its original packaging from The Royal Mint, including a smart acrylic display case and colourful box. It is one of 32,500 in this presentation, and has the standard weight of 8.00 grams and diameter of 27.30 millimetres. Struck in .925 sterling silver, this 50p is finished at proof standard, meaning it has a higher definition and quality than circulating coinage.
