And, considering the drastic edition limit cuts to the 2022 coins, THOUSANDS of collectors are set to miss out on completing their collection…
Celebrating 95 years of fun-filled adventure, these charming 50p coins each feature designs of the best-loved characters from A. A. Milne’s original stories, with original illustrations from E. H. Shepard.
When the first three coins were issued in 2020, they took the collecting world by storm. They were so popular that the very first Silver Proof 50p featuring Winnie the Pooh himself – SOLD-OUT in LESS THAN 24 HOURS!
Tigger 50p sells out
Collector demand continued into 2021 with the second series of Winnie the Pooh 50p coins.
Featuring some of Winnie the Pooh’s most trusted companions, these coins each had an edition limit of JUST 18,000 for their Silver Proof specification.
In fact, so popular were these coins that the Tigger 50p is no longer available at The Royal Mint.
As collectors anticipated the issue of the final three coins in the series in 2022, at The Westminster Collection, we were already expecting demand to outweigh supply.
JUST 6,000 ISSUED WORLDWIDE
That’s because JUST 6,000 of each of the Silver Proof 50p coins have been issued worldwide – one third of the edition limit of the sell-out 2020 and 2021 coins!
12,000 collectors missed out on the Eeyore Silver Proof 50p as it sold-out in a matter of hours at The Royal Mint.
Undoubtedly, this final 50p, which features a design of the most popular Winnie the Pooh characters, will be just as popular. Unfortunately, this means many will likely miss out on securing it for their collection.
How much is the Winnie the Pooh 50p worth?
The first and last issues in any coin series are hugely popular with collectors.
When a theme is as universally popular as Winnie the Pooh, there are no surprises collectors rushed to get their hands on the UK’s first Winnie the Pooh 50p.
Much like first editions of best-selling books, or the first run of banknotes, UK-first coin issues can sell for well over their retail price on secondary market sites.
And, with edition limits as low as this, we knew the sell-out potential for this coin was high, and collectors knew it too.
Don’t miss out on the Winnie the Pooh and Friends 50p!
If you want to be one of JUST 6,000 lucky collectors to own this BRAND-NEW coin in .925 Sterling Silver, you’ll need to act extremely fast.
