Paddington Bear has been a British icon for what seems like forever. The streets of England are filled with souvenirs featuring the bear and his trademark red hat and blue jacket. He’s kept us turning pages since he first arrived at Paddington station with a beaten up suitcase and no return ticket.
2018 marks 60 years since Michael Bond first introduced the character of Paddington Bear. To celebrate the occasion the Royal Mint has released a special edition Paddington Bear coin, a wonderful collectable for true fans. We’ve partnered with the Royal Mint to bring you a 60th anniversary Paddington collector’s box, featuring a coin and stunning story book.
There are two variants of the coin, so you can choose between glittering gold or sparkling silver. The silver-proof coin features a colour design of Paddington himself which makes it a truly unique collector’s item. The Paddington gold coin edition is a real rarity, and something that any true fan of Paddington is sure to adore. The brilliant red hardback, gold-embossed story book features The Story of Paddington Bear and Paddington in the Garden, so you can enjoy two fantastic Paddington stories in one book. Visualise Paddington’s adventures with beautiful original illustrations depicting the little bear, his mishaps, and, of course, all the jars of marmalade he eats.
This authentic coin is a great collector’s item, and a wonderful way to pay homage to the national icon which can be treasured for years to come. It’s the perfect gift idea for any fan of Paddington young or old.
