The Royal Mint, in collaboration with Disney, has released the third coin in its new Winnie the Pooh and Friends series, depicting the popular character of Piglet.
The Piglet 50p is the third coin in the series which celebrates the iconic work of British author A. A Milne. It follows 50 pence pieces featuring Winnie the Pooh and Christopher Robin, released earlier this autumn.
The beautifully designed coin features Winnie the Pooh’s best friend Piglet pictured with a dandelion, in an original illustration by E. H. Shepard reflecting the delicate nature of the well-loved character.
Clare Maclennan, Director of Commemorative Coin for The Royal Mint, said: “We are so excited to launch the third coin in our popular Winnie the Pooh and Friends series, celebrating A. A Milne’s classic character Piglet. The intricate design is inspired by the original watercolour drawings, and will make a special edition to any Christmas stocking.
“Collecting coins remains a popular hobby in the UK, and we see a lot of demand for our ranges celebrating children’s characters, especially at Christmas”
