Interest in this coin has generated one of our most viewed posts in our Facebook Page:
The Royal Mint Gruffalo coins celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the book release in 1999.
The coin WILL NOT be released for general UK circulation so is for coin collectors only, following similar coin releases from The Royal Mint such as the 2019 Peter Rabbit 50p and The Snowman 50p.
Please check the Royal Mint website for availability, before paying inflated prices on eBay. The BU coin is likely unlimited mintage so you should not have any trouble purchasing one directly.
The Gruffalo is a children's book by writer and playwright Julia Donaldson, illustrated by Axel Scheffler, that tells the story of a mouse, the protagonist of the book, taking a walk in a European forest.
Characters from The Gruffalo book include:
- The Gruffalo
So we may even see a coin for each character, as we did with the Beatrix Potter 50p coin series.
