‘As if by magic the shopkeeper appeared…’

For the generation of children who watched Mr Benn, those words heralded the beginning of yet another magical adventure for Mr Benn.

Incredibly it’s been 50 years since the postman first arrived at No 52 Festive Road with Mr Benn’s invitation to a fancy dress party… and so started his first adventure. Since then Mr Benn has fascinated millions of children with his adventures as he walked through that magical changing room doorway.

And so, to celebrate the 50th Anniversary year, a special set of British Isles 50p coins have been released by Guernsey Treasury and fully approved by Her Majesty the Queen.

Check out the coins below and all the information you will need to order. They are certainly something that Mr Benn would have been sure to “keep carefully just to remind me”.

The coins were released to celebrate over 150 years since author, Lewis Carroll first narrated his nonsense fairytale about a girl called Alice. Since then, the story has been adapted in many forms, from book to theatre to ballet and even a blockbuster Disney film. The story is undeniably one of the best-known and most popular works of English-language fiction. A first edition of the book once sold at auction for over $2 million, confirming Alice commemoratives would be highly sought-after.

The 50p has firmly established itself as the collector’s favourite coin, so it was only right the beloved characters from the fairytale feature on them. Authorised for release by Isle of Man Treasury and fully approved by Her Majesty the Queen, these coins could undoubtedly become one of the most popular numismatic releases of 2021!
