Limited edition quarter ounce gold proof coin. Did you know that 2021 marked the fiftieth anniversary of Mr Men? The series of British children’s books by Roger Hargreaves were first published in 1971. There’s now 92 Mr Men and Little Miss stories which have together sold more than 100 million copies worldwide, the series continued by Rogers son Adam. Many will remember the bright and bold illustrations that typify the series and the spin-off tv series. To celebrate the anniversary of the iconic books The Royal Mint has released a limited collection of Mr Men coins, starting with coins inspired by one of the series’ instantly recognisable characters: Mr Happy. Mr Happy is bright yellow and in the third Mr Men book where he is introduced he helps Mr Miserable turn his frown upside down. Mr Happy appears chuckling on coins in this series against the landscape of Misterland with the words ‘MR. MEN 50 years’ above and the author’s name below that. This 1/4oz edition is struck in 7.80 grams of 999.9 fine gold. It measures 22.00 millimetres across and has a face value of £25. This example is offered in its original packaging from The Royal Mint with a numbered certificate of authenticity confirming that its one of only 750 struck.
