Paddington Bear 50p coins set to enter circulation



The new coins that celebrate the Paddington bear will soon begin to appear in people's pockets and wallets.

The Royal Mint has announced that two 50p coins with the beloved bear will go into circulation in the UK since October.

The output coincides with the 60th anniversary of the much-loved character, which was first introduced to the nation in 1958 in a book written by Michael Bond called A Bear Called Paddington.

The coin drawings depict the Peruvian bear in two points of his adventures: sitting on his suitcase at Paddington station and on a day at Buckingham Palace.

The Royal Mint has already released coins versions of Paddington for collectors, with prices ranging from £ 1

0 to £ 60.

Silver-proof coins and uncirculated diamonds are still available for purchase on the Royal Mint website and an album in which to store coins.

And now, Paddington fans will also be able to get their paws on simple coins that celebrate the bear – for free.

Early circulating versions of normal metal coins will soon be found in people's change, the Royal Mint said.

Nicola Howell, director of consumer currency at the Royal Mint, said: "If you like collecting coins, then keep your eyes open for Paddington Bear in your change and keep them safe in their special collector's album.

"Paddington Bear is very popular and is part of popular British culture and we are incredibly proud to participate in the 60th anniversary celebrations."
