Royal Mint The Snowman 50p Coin

The Snowman is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, and to pay homage to the classic tale, the Royal Mint has released The Snowman 50p coin. Specially commissioned in honour of the timeless tale, The Snowman 50p coin is silver proofed and secured inside a Perspex case, with the case itself housed inside a personalised, collector’s edition gift box.

  • Silver proofed coin featuring an original image from The Snowman
  • Presented in a personalised collector’s gift box with any Name embossed on the lid
  • Preserved inside a magnetic Perspex case
  • 40th anniversary limited edition gift set
  • Limited to one coin per customer

The 50p Snowman Coin you will receive will include an official Royal Mint Certificate of Authenticity. The certificate provided will not have the coin issue number or the eight-page The Snowman booklet, as the booklet and coin issue is exclusive to Royal Mint. 2000 of the coins are available on Historic Newspapers, of limited availability for individuals to collect.

The History of The Snowman

The Snowman is a children's book by Raymond Briggs, first published in 1978. The short film version of the book, which was released in 1972, has become equally recognisable, featuring the memorable song “Walking in the Air”. The song and film are synonymous and continue to be loved by children and adults alike for their nostalgic feel. Now, avid numismatists and fans can collect the limited edition, Royal Mint The Snowman 50p coin.

How to Personalise Your Royal Mint 50p Coin Gift Box

To make this gift memorable, you can personalise the gift box with a Name of up to 25 characters, which will be embossed on the lid. What’s more, you can add a personal Message of up to 80 characters over two lines, which will appear inside the lid to let your loved one know how special they are.

To receive the collector’s gift box and coin, we do require personalisation. The personalisation you enter in the appropriate fields will be printed exactly as it is entered. Due to the nature of such a high-value keepsake, the text cannot be altered once the order is placed and payment has been made for The Snowman coin. Orders cannot be cancelled and refunded once the order has been placed.
