New Royal Mint Winnie the Pooh and Friends 50p


Recommended Posts

Just got this email from the Royal mint asking me to register my interest for the new Winnie the Pooh collection arriving on the 23rd of September.

“A long time ago , a bear of very little brain bumped down the stairs and into our world . He loves honey , Christopher Robin and all of his friends . He is known for his hums , tucking into smackerels and for getting into all sorts of sticky spots . We all know and love Winnie the Pooh. 

Bee - ginning with Winnie the Pooh 50p coin , we are introducing a series of designs inspired by the classic stories of A.A. Milne . Welcome Winnie the Pooh and friends into your life as they appear for the first time on a UK 50p coin.

Sign up for updates and bee the first to hear about this classic new collection.“

I’ll be interested to see how well these coins do on the secondary market, probably not as well as the peter rabbit in 2016 but they’re bound to be popular. Thoughts?

Well, I don't think they know it's me to be honest. I have now received my 3rd coin and happy to say it is perfect to my eye!

These shouldn't be looked at as an investment,occasionally you might get very lucky e.g. Peter Rabbit. But on the whole you'll be lucky to get your money back if you go to sell. I've ordered the full

got my proof it seems I have some pooh on the other side to ! not happy

Yeah that’s pretty standard on a release day. Doesn’t mean they’re selling like hot cakes.

Currently building my silver stack so looking for Kooks, Koalas, Eagles & Pandas

Huge mintage numbers...not worth jumping in for me. Maybe a year down the road, despite the iconic nature of the image...mintage just too big.

I don’t think the mintage is too bad for an internationally known character. My issue with be the QC. I just hope I get some good ones.

Mintage is 18,000

From memory the 2016 Peter Rabbit which has skyrocketed had a mintage of 15,000

So they are not miles apart - but the chances of this 50p coin being worth £500 is slim in my eyes. Maybe I will be wrong. 

As with most of these releases from the RM there will be short term flipping window for people and then the true demand and market price will settle in 3-4 months.

Well, Mrs BYB likes Winnie so we have sprung for the 3 coins that are available now. Lets see how they look in hand - not convinced they will be financial winners but as Winnie means something to Mrs BYB its a good investment for me to make at very least!

I've been a huge fan of Winnie-the-Pooh since I was a small child, so was really excited to get the email from RM saying they were to have a classic (EH Shepard) collection. unfortunately I have to say I'm more than a little disappointed with the first Pooh coin they've brought out, I think there were much better EH Shepard options they could have chosen. I've bought these first coins and I'll continue to buy into the collections but depending on how I feel about the rest of the set I may sell on more than I'd initially intended. 

I can understand why people think this set won't be as popular as the Peter Rabbit one, it was a very pretty set and had quite a wide appeal for that reason alone; but I can't help thinking old Winnie-the-Pooh will do relatively well if for no other reason than he has a very loyal fan base. I imagine I probably fit quite squarely into the demographic this collection will appeal to most, I wouldn't pass up classic Pooh, but I wouldn't thank you for the new disney Pooh. I can also understand why 9 coins seems too many for some but it kind of fits when you take into account the different characters from the original stories, though I don't think each character will get a whole coin all to themselves.

I understand your thinking but look at the Peter Rabbit series. That had a similar mintage and you can pretty easily pick up all 50p coins in the proof series years later.

It’s fun to have fun.

First peter rabbit had 15,000 and subsequent ones went up to 60,000 I seem to remember.

Except for the first one!

The first coin was 15,000 hence why I said similar and that was only one coin not 3 and the very 1st colourised coin produced byThe Royal Mint as characters. I have the entire set. Don't get me wrong, it may be a winner like The Peter Rabbit 2016 but the rest are easy to come by. Good luck.

That is correct. They are following the same route based on The Peter Rabbit Series I expect (and what they can get away with)

It’s fun to have fun.
