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.

    If it is like the past when the A =Z coins were released I have yet to find one in my change no fun in collecting them just the impossilbe

  5. Vickie Davies on June 19, 2018 at 6:24 am

    I feel the same as others here – lovely coins but far too many coming out – what is the point of buying annual packs when the Mint bring out many many other coins throughout the year – it also confuses me why they bring out coins like Jane Austin and Aviation and don’t put them into circulation, then there is the mintage figures – why do they take so long to be published?

    When are the limited edition ‘Paddington Bear’ being released for sale?

  9. Paul Batt on June 18, 2018 at 12:54 am

    I usume a limited amount will enter circulation & not only for collector sets,which puts the fun back into the coin hunting them down.Can anyone clarify this?

    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.
    Les.

    • graham tickner on June 18, 2018 at 3:33 am

      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.

    • Patrick barlow on June 18, 2018 at 8:51 am
