Fantastic opportunity to own a limited edition silver proof coin cover issued to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Paddington Bear
On 13th October 1958 Paddington Bear first appeared within a children’s book. The friendly bear from Peru with a fondness for marmalade sandwiches has since become a classic character loved by many - selling over 30 million books worldwide. To mark the 60th anniversary, an extremely limited edition coin cover has been issued.
The attractive cover features the Silver Proof Paddington at Buckingham Palace 50p coin issued by the Royal Mint. Skilfully stuck by expert craftsmen in 925/100 Sterling silver to an immaculate proof finish, the coins reverse has been inspired by Paddington’s day trip to see the Changing of the Guard at the Queen’s official residence, Buckingham Palace. To complete this stunning cover, it includes a 1st class Paddington Bear stamp issued in 2006 by the Royal Mail and cancelled on the 60th anniversary date – 13th October 2018 – setting in stone the tiny edition limit of only 199 covers.
