The New Paddington 50p coins – full issue details confirmed.

In February it was confirmed by Royal Proclamation that the most British of bears – Paddington – would feature on two new UK 50p coins.

We can now reveal the full details of the first issue. Officially released on 18th of June, currently available to order.

Limited Edition Silver Proof 50p Coin

UK 2018 Paddington Bear Station Silver Proof 50p Coin Obverse Reverse - The New Paddington 50p coins – full issue details confirmed.

60,000 official Royal Mint Limited Edition Presentations of the coin will feature Paddington in full colour sitting on his suitcase at Paddington Station.

The coin is struck from Sterling Silver to the highest proof finish and is presented in an acrylic display case.

Given the immense popularity of the coloured Beatrix Potter 50p coins over the last 3 years, which have continued to sell out year-on-year, collectors can look forward to this issue being equally collectable.

You can order the new Limited Edition Silver Proof Paddington at the Station 50p coin here for £65 with FREE p&p.

Base Metal Brilliant Uncirculated Collector’s Edition

UK 2018 Paddington Bear Station CuNi BU 50p Coin in Royal Mint Pack Reverse - The New Paddington 50p coins – full issue details confirmed.

But Paddington fans don’t only have the option of the Limited Edition Silver version.  A special collector’s quality Brilliant Uncirculated coin will be struck in the normal 50p circulating metal (cupro-nickel) and will be available for as little as £3.99 in a Change Checker Certified BU Collector’s Card or £10 in the official Royal Mint Presentation Pack.

You can order the new Base Metal Brilliant Uncirculated Paddington at the Station 50p coin here for £3.99 +p&p.

Second coin design revealed today

But that’s not all the good news for Paddington fans.  The Royal Mint has revealed the second 50p coin design today for the very first time…

UK 2018 Paddington Bear Buckingham Palace Silver Proof 50p Coin Obverse Reverse - The New Paddington 50p coins – full issue details confirmed.

Featuring Paddington outside Buckingham Palace, the second issue will be released later this year in silver and base metal but is available to pre-order here.

    tried to order by phone 5 x change checker plus 50p collecting pages but apparently I can only order 3 ? your ref 216/440T/5
    It does not mention this on the literature that is sent with a pre order.
    After buying 5 sets of the album’s as gifts I wrongly thought they would come with the 50p plus holders.
    How can I order 5 of the above ?

      Hi Jamie, thanks for spotting – it was an error on the website. If you try again now you should be able to order 5. Or give us a call on 0333 0032 777 and one of our customer service team will be able to help you out. Thanks, Robin

  5. Dougie on July 11, 2018 at 9:35 am

    Great up to date info and again great buy
    It’s great to keep collection up to date so easy without checking my change and use notes to find coins
    Keep up the good work

    I am like a Lot of coin collectors being totally confused why the mint brings out new coind for circulation but then do not release them. If you are well off then you can just collect BU pack coins at 4 or 5 times the face value. So PLEASE royal mint release the 50p and £2 coins and stop making coin collecting for the rich only.

    You say 3 – 5 working days then to wait 10 but it’s to be your working days and not Royal Mail’s who work 6 days a week. I ordered the Paddington 50 pences a d not received, won’t let me speak to management and keep putting me off.

  8. Mich on July 4, 2018 at 8:37 pm

    Why is it £10.00 from royal mint and only 3.99 from westminstercollection anyone know ?

    • Gareth Shepherd on July 23, 2018 at 5:59 pm
