Recently, we announced an exciting brand new collection of 50p coins celebrating the 70th anniversary of the longest running comic strip in Beano® comics – Dennis! Unsurprisingly, since their release, the coins have seen huge demand as collectors and beloved comic fans alike race to get theirs.
But, before anything else, you must know that all the specifications of these coins have been released in extremely low edition limits. When you consider that over 1.5 million people were once part of the official Beano Fan Club, they are virtually guaranteed to not satisfy demand.
The 50p has firmly established itself as the collector’s favourite coin, so it was only right the pesky trouble makers from the Beano classic feature on them. Authorised for release by Pitcairn Islands, fully approved by Her Majesty the Queen and officially licensed by Beano®, don’t miss out on the chance of securing yours.

It’s hard to believe that almost 25 years ago the nation lost its People’s Princess. Diana, Princess of Wales, was famously known for her compassion and commitment to good causes. Many of her patronages included children’s and cancer charities, and her work advocating for mental health and HIV became world famous.
Diana’s ability to touch the hearts of everyone is remembered by millions around the world. Today, Thursday 1st July 2021, on what would have been Princess Diana’s 60th Birthday a special statue is due to be unveiled.
And it’s causing quite the excitement in the collecting community…
Commissioned by both the Princes
In 2017, Princes William and Harry announced they were commissioning a statue for their late mother to ‘help all those who visit Kensington Palace to reflect on their mother’s life and legacy…and recognise their mother’s positive impact’ .
Both Princes have signed off and approved the design together.
Placed in Diana’s favourite spot
The statue will be unveiled in the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace, which is said to have been Diana’s favourite spot. In fact, in 2017 for the 20th anniversary of her death, the garden was transformed into a beautiful tribute to her. Featuring displays of forget-me-nots, white lilies, white roses, tulips, and Cosmo daisies. The white and cream hues were a nod to Diana’s love for lighter shades.
And importantly for collectors
The statue itself has been designed by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS, who has a glittering history of commissioned work for The Royal Mint. Most notably are his portrait design of Queen Elizabeth II featured on all UK coins between 1998 and 2015, and the recent UK Prince Philip memorial coin. His work has also featured on many medals and commemorative coins, including the UK 2012 Diamond Jubilee £5 Coin, the 2002 Golden Jubilee Crown, and the Queen Mother Centenary Crown.
With such an established career, it’s safe to say that many collectors are excited to see the result of Rank-Broadley’s latest work for this special statue.
And as this year marks what would have been Diana’s 60th birthday, alongside the new statue unveiling multiple commemoratives have been issued to pay tribute to the People’s Princess. If you’d like to pay tribute to the late Princess, you can see the full range available by clicking here.
