‘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 Complete Brilliant Uncirculated 50p Set
This stunning collection features all five new 50p coins, each struck to a Brilliant Uncirculated quality and featuring Mr Benn on four of his most popular adventures – the Red Night, Clown, Cook and Spaceman. These go perfectly with the official Mr Benn centrepiece coin.
What’s more, the coins will come protectively housed in bespoke presentation pack that has also been designed specifically for your coins.
This complete set is a must-have for anyone who grew up watching Mr Benn, so if you’d like to secure one for your collection for JUST £31.25 (+p&p) then click here >>
The STRICTLY LIMITED Mr Benn Silver 50p Coin
The Silver Proof version of the 50p coin features a nostalgic design of Mr Benn, alongside a stylised ’50’ with colours inspired by Festive Road. The obverse features the Queen’s effigy by Jody Clark.
The coin has been struck to a flawless Proof finish from .925 Sterling Silver with selective vivid colour printing to bring the design to life – this really is a must-have for any Mr Benn fans.
The Silver Proof editions are without a doubt the collector’s favourite and almost always acquire fast sell-outs and with an edition limit of JUST 4,995 coins, time is short to secure one for your collection…
The ULTIMATE Mr Benn Silver Proof 50p Collection
One of the most limited way to own these brand new coins is the Silver Proof Collection. With only 1,995 available to collectors worldwide, a sell-out in inevitable. In fact, it’s the same edition as the first Peter Pan Silver Proof 50p Set which completely SOLD OUT.
Each coin is struck from .925 Silver, to a Proof finish, with the addition of colour and comes ready to present in case with numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
The Complete Brilliant Uncirculated 50p Cover Collection – JUST 495 available
