To celebrate the iconic 60th anniversary of Paddington Bear’s first appearance in 1958 in Michael Bond’s novel “A Bear Called Paddington”, The Royal Mint issued potentially the most sought-after 50p ever. The coin’s design by David Knapton is based on the modern adaptation from the CGI-live action movie, featuring Paddington on his suitcase in front of the station, wearing the famous tag around his neck, which reads ‘Please look after this bear. Thank you.’ The always polite Paddington Bear has always been a family favourite and this coin pays tribute to the British Bear from Darkest Peru.
