Collect a Classic  –  introducing the brand-new TheWind in The Willows Fifty Pence Coin!

The Wind In The Willows is one best-loved children’s books of all time. The lovable characters and their comic escapades have been a constant companion for many of us from our own childhood to reading them to our grandchildren. It was 90 years ago that Kenneth Grahame invited E.H. Shepard to bring his characters to life, ‘I love these little people, be kind to them.’ He asked of the artist.

Now you can celebrate 90 years of E.H. Shepard’s original artwork and join Ratty & Mole on an adventure through the Wild Wood

Beautifully crafted using state-of-the-art minting techniques and artwork from E.H. Shepard’s original drawings, the coin perfectly portrays the magic of Ratty & Mole’s first meeting in Chapter One 'The River Bank'. Mole taking a break from his spring-cleaning wanders out for a walk, bewitched and entranced he comes across the river and meets Rat, the pair embark on a boating adventure and become firm friends.  

“There is nothing — absolutely nothing— half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.” — the Water Rat to the Mole

The obverse features a brand-new 2021 portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by artist Jody Clark 

The artist and coin designer Jody Clark — who designed the fifth portrait of HRH Queen Elizabeth II  — has created a new 2021 effigy of The Queen that features on the obverse of The Wind in the Willows Fifty Pence Coin.

Layered in pure Silver  –  just 49,999 commemoratives are being released worldwide!

Officially licensed, The Wind in the Willows Fifty Pence Coin, is layered in fine .999 silver, and is struck to a PROOF finish – the highest possible quality, not once but twice onto a specially prepared mirrored surface, making this the ultimate collectors' edition. Struck in bas-relief the colour is applied by skilled craftsmen only once the piece has been struck, creating a special, life-like, almost three-dimensional quality. Great care and skill have gone into making this beautiful coin and just 49,999 are being issued worldwide, meaning that fewer than 1 in every 1,350 British households can bring home the magic of the Wild Wood!
