The Royal Mint have just confirmed a brand new 50p series featuring characters from Britain’s favourite books – Winnie the Pooh!

No text teaser 1024x1024 - Breaking 50p news from deep in the Hundred Acre Wood

Each design has been inspired by A.A. Milne’s classic children’s stories starting with Pooh Bear himself and is sure to be one of the most popular coin releases this year.

Originally published in 1926, Winnie the Pooh is a story about the adventures of Christopher Robin’s honey-loving teddy bear and his friends Piglet, Tigger, Eeyore, Owl, Kanger, and Rabbit.

Since then, Winnie the Pooh has featured in over 11 films, 11 television programmes, 4 different books, and has become a worldwide collectable item.

Whilst the designs of the upcoming 50p coins are currently top-secret, we can’t wait to see this loveable bear and his friends come to life once more, this time on the UK’s most collected coin.

But who is your favourite character? Let us know in the comments below!
