This is the fourth coin in the series, after the issuance of Winnie the Pooh, Christopher Robin and Puglet Coins last year.
This is the first new addition of 2021, but then there will be a potato coin, and at the end of the year a tiger coin.
The coin design is inspired by EH Shepherd’s original decoration, taken from the pages of the classic AA Meeting Stories, first published in 1926.
The range combines the Royal Mint’s 1,100-year-old mint tradition with modern printing technology, which has allowed brilliant irregular versions of bright colors.
Royal Mint designer Daniel Thorne is behind the nine-coin Pooh series.
Three more coins will be issued in 2022, but the design is not yet known.
Throughout the series, Thorne has added a special twist to the shape of the bee that is prominent on every design in the series.
“Winnie the Pooh is a precious children’s classic, passed down from generation to generation, like a popular coin hobby,” said Claire McLennan, divisional director of the Royal Mint.
Daniel Thorne, product designer at the Royal Mint for the Winnie the Pooh coin, said: Be true to them. Love. “
