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”
