It has just been announced that a second Snowman UK 50p is going to be released in time for the festive season.
After last year’s popular Snowman 50p coin we can only expect the brand new coin for 2019 will be just as popular!
According to the Royal Proclamation, published on the 10th October, there will be a new coin to feature:
A figure of the Snowman and the boy from the book The Snowman by Raymond Briggs.
We can’t wait to see what the new design will look like.
The UK’s first Snowman 50p was released in 2018 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Raymond Brigg’s tale, The Snowman.
As the first Christmas themed 50p to be released by The Royal Mint, the 2018 50p coin was very popular amongst collectors . In fact, the Gold and Silver Proof versions of the coin SOLD OUT in just a few hours of release!
Details about the new 2019 design are still VERY top secret, but we think that the second Snowman 50p coin will be as popular as last year’s 50p.
