Royal Mint releases Winnie the Pooh coin

The Royal Mint has today revealed its latest coin - a Winnie the Pooh 50p that has taken the original and much-loved illustrations of the beloved bear and transformed them on to a UK coin for the first time. The first official UK coin featuring Winnie the Pooh will form part of a wider collection of special 50p coins featuring Winnie the Pooh and friends. Created by the Royal Mint in collaboration with Disney, the 50p coin uses the original and instantly recognisable watercolour illustrations of EH Shepard, with the first coin design showing Winnie the Pooh at his happiest, with a jar of his favourite honey.
