A little mouse with a big tale – a new 50p gold coin featuring the Gruffalo and Mouse from the magical picture book.

Whether your favourite is the little brown mouse or the Gruffalo himself, the new 50p gold coin from our childhood characters range is perfect for fans of the famous picture book.

Featuring both the monster and Mouse together in a scene from the story.

Nicola Howell, Director of Consumer at The Royal Mint commented: “Following the fantastic response to the Gruffalo’s debut appearance on a 50p coin to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the book, we are delighted to introduce an additional coin capturing Mouse and Gruffalo’s first meeting, continuing the story of one of the world’s most favourite literary monsters on UK coins.”

Julia Donaldson, said: “The launch of the first Gruffalo coins in February was a great 20th Birthday present for him, and the issue of a second collectable 50p coin in the same year feels like the icing on his birthday cake.”
