The Royal Mint has partnered with Penguin Ventures and Snowman Enterprises to bring illustrated 50 pence pieces to U.K. collectors.
Celebrating the original Raymond Briggs classic animation, “The Snowman” coins arrive in time for the holiday season with illustrations by award-winning animator Robin Shaw, assistant director, “The Snowman and The Snowdog.”
Gruffalo and Paddington coins are already seeing popular demand. The new coin depicts The Snowman and James. The Royal Mint will also be launching a limited-edition piggy bank which will feature designs from the animation.
