Paddington Bear Gift Set and 50p Coin - Gift Details
The Paddington Bear gift set celebrates 60 years since Michael Bond’s bear from Darkest Peru first made his appearance in 1958. A national treasure, Paddington Bear has become a British icon, honoured now by Royal Mint with his very own minted two-series coins and storybook. Depending on the special edition gift box chosen, the individual will receive the Paddington and Paddington in the Garden storybook and either the gold or silver Royal Mint coin. It’s a must-have keepsake for anyone whose childhood was illuminated by Paddington and his marmalade sandwiches.
Commissioned in partnership with Royal Mint, the 22-carat 50p rose gold Paddington Bear coin is a must-have collector’s piece for numismatists and fanatics alike. Released as part of the two-coin series, the coin is limited edition. Only six-hundred have been produced in Paddington’s honour as a British icon.
The coin is encased inside a secure casing, housed in a special edition gift box with the Royal Mint crest. The face of the coin features the 2018 Buckingham Palace design with Queen Elizabeth II on the opposite side of the face. Inside the gift set, the number of the issued coin will be specified on an official Royal Mint certificate, authenticating the issued collector’s piece.
