2019 Wallace and Gromit 50p Coloured Silver Proof

UK19WGSP 2019 Wallace and Gromit 50p Coloured Silver Proof Reverse
from
£69.00
From 'A Grand Day Out' in 1989 to 'A Matter of Loaf and Death' in 2008, Wallace and Gromit's adventures have a timeless humour that has captivated audiences for over thirty years. With five British Academy Film Awards, three Academy Awards and a Peabody Award under their belt, Nick Park and Aardman Animations' loveable characters are not only charming and funny, but also widely successful. Wallace is best known for his love of cheese and crackers, particularly Wensleydale, and for his various wild and wacky inventions. His dog Gromit meanwhile graduated with a degree in Engineering for Dogs. To celebrate three decades of these characters, The Royal Mint released a series of special commemorative coins, including this silver proof edition. On the reverse is a design by Nick Park, featuring a close-up of Wallace and Gromit, the former looking at his dog with affection while Gromit expresses surprise. It is surrounded by a ring with studs in to represent Wallace's inventions along with their names and the phrase 'CASIUS PRAESTANS' which translates to 'cracking cheese.' On this collectible coin the ‘heads’ side features the fifth definitive coinage portrait of Her Majesty the Queen by Jody Clark which has been in use since 2015. One of a limited edition, this coin weighs 8.00 grams and has a diameter of 27.30 millimetres. This coin has colour printed detail and is finished to proof standard in .925 sterling silver giving it a higher quality finish and greater definition than circulating coins. It comes in a specially designed acrylic display stand with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
