Royal Mint Releases a The Snowman 50p in Time for Christmas

For the first time The Snowman is appearing on a UK coin, as the Royal Mint release a special collection in celebration of the 40th Anniversary of The Snowman

Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas if you don’t watch the unforgettable adventure of The Snowman, when on a cold winter’s night, the snowman comes to life and befriends the little boy who built him and they fly off on a magical adventure. They fly high across the frozen countryside down to Brighton Pier, then race home to beat the dawn, which is when the tale takes a sad turn as the next morning, the boy wakes to find his snowman has melted. This timeless story has become a much-loved part of Christmas and family tradition of the festive season, and for this reason we think this new 50p will make such a perfect stocking filler.

The Snowman Collection

There are three 50p coins in the collection which are:

  • 40th Anniversary of The Snowman in Gold, Limited Edition of only 400 – Already 100% reserved
  • 40th Anniversary of The Snowman in Silver with Colour printing, Limited Edition of 15,000 – All ready 100% reserved
  • 40th Anniversary of The Snowman in Cupro-nickel, Unlimited Mintage and Uncirculated


A Perfect Stocking Filler

This year you can share the magic of a much-loved festive favourite. The Uncirculated Cupro-nickel Snowman 50p comes in fold-out packaging featuring illustrations by Robin Shaw – Assistant Director of The Snowman and the Snowdog. This special 50p is celebrating the 40th anniversary of the timeless classic The Snowman and there are no plans for The Snowman coin to enter circulation. This presentation pack can capture the memories of a magical family Christmas and it on sale for £10 and can be bought Here from the Royal Mint direct.
