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 2 new UK 50p coins.

We can now reveal the full details of the first issue, which will be fully available from its official launch date of 18 June.

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 will be able order the new Limited Edition Silver Proof Paddington at the Station 50p coin from The Westminster Collection for £65 with FREE p&p on Monday 18 June.

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.

Both will be available to order from The Westminster Collection from Monday 18 June.

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 will also be available to pre-order from Monday.

    I am looking forward to putting these two Paddington 50p coins into my collection
    But I do think the mint is bringing out far too many 50 p & £2 coins and far too quick .
    FAR TOO MANY FAR TOO QUICK and FAR TOO EXPENSIVE ,
    They are killing the hobby and the fun of it.

      I total agree as I have told the mint also what coins that have been made like 10p are out in north of England but I have not seen any in Sidcup yet south of England.
