The wait is finally over! Two brand new Paddington™ 50ps for 2019 have been revealed and they were well worth the wait!
It’s been a whirlwind of a morning here at Collectology but I’ve taken 5 minutes to pull together everything you need you need to know about these new coins and the most exclusive ways to own them! Let’s take a look….
Two new stories to tell featuring London’s finest…
I’m sure you all know by now that 2018 saw the release of the first ever Official UK coins to feature national treasure, Paddington™ marking 60 years since the first book, ‘A Bear Called Paddington’ was published. Featuring Paddington™ at two of London’s most celebrated landmarks – Paddington Station and Buckingham Palace, the 50ps went down a storm and were snapped up in no time; in fact, these are almost impossible to find in circulation now and the Gold Proof versions have completely SOLD OUT!
Released TODAY: Paddington™ visits the Tower of London!
This year, the adventures continue with original designs featuring Paddington™ at the historic Tower of London and the awe-inspiring St Paul’s Cathedral, interpreted by The Royal Mint’s incredible graphic designed David Knapton.
The Paddington™ at the Tower 50p is released today and depicts Paddington™ indulging in a well-deserved marmalade sandwich on a day out at the Tower of London! It’s available in Brilliant Uncirculated quality, Silver Proof and Gold Proof.
Coming soon: Paddington™ at St. Paul’s Cathedral!
While the fourth in the series the Paddington™ at St Paul’s 50p will be released later in the year and features our furry friend tipping his hat to St Paul’s Cathedral, bringing this legendary landmark to life with impeccable detail! If you head to the links proved below, you will have the opportunity to pre-reserve this coin ahead of the release date in your preferred presentation!
Collectors are thrilled to hear that these coins will both be entering circulation, but they won’t be an easy find! In fact, most collectors are itching to secure them in a superior Brilliant uncirculated quality OR struck to a premium Silver Proof or Gold Proof finish! We have a range of some of the most limited presentations out there…
The Capsule Edition – Hand-Signed and Strictly limited to JUST 250!
Available exclusively from Collectology, you can secure the brand-new Paddington™ at the Tower of London 50p in a Signed Capsule Edition presentation. The coin has been struck to an unblemished Brilliant Uncirculated finish, meaning it is free from the imperfections of circulation metal.
The coin has been paired with original artwork by renowned artist Nick Watton and encapsulated in tamper-proof casing to ensure that it remains in pristine condition for generations to come. What’s more, Nick has hand-signed JUST 250 of these limited capsule editions, making it one of the rarest ways to own the brand-new coin.
The collector market for signed artwork is growing rapidly and ALL of our previous artist signature editions have completely sold out! Combined with such a highly anticipated UK coin release, we are sure that this will be no exception to the sell-out sensation!
Plus, your Signed Capsule Edition comes complete with a deluxe presentation case and a numbered certificate of authenticity confirming its place within the strict edition limit and making it the perfect display piece in any collection.
What’s more, you can reserve the very same, hand-signed and strictly limited presentation of the upcoming Paddington™ at St Paul’s Cathedral 50p, making your complete 2019 collection stand out from the crowd.
With the hand-signed edition likely to sell out in no time, you have the opportunity to own this stunning Capsule Edition featuring the Paddington™ at the Tower 50p, in a unique presentation, limited to just 1,958 worldwide – reflecting the year we were first introduced to Michael Bond’s beloved Paddington™.
The premium collector choice – The Paddington™ at the Tower of London Silver Proof 50p! JUST 25,000 worldwide!
If, like me, Paddington™ is a childhood favourite of yours, there’s only one way to own this brand-new coin; in flawless Silver Proof.
A proof finish is the highest standard of coin struck, with no equal in detail, finish or sharpness – an example of craftsmanship sought-after around the world.
Proof coins are in such high demand because they are far rarer than their Brilliant Uncirculated counterparts. The dies used to strike Proof coins are hand-finished and a coin is struck up to 6 times meaning the process is much slower and far more intricate.
What’s more, the coin has been struck from fine .925 Silver and features immaculate colour print to achieve that truly eye-catching impact, bringing to life the beloved red hat and blue duffel coat adorning the iconic little bear.
If it’s a sell-out you’re looking for, this is likely to be it. Earlier this year, The Royal Mint issued a Gruffalo 50p in Silver Proof with exactly the same edition limit as this brand-new Paddington™ at the Tower 50p release which sold out almost instantly. All signs suggest this is going to go the same way!
