Paddington bear coins are marketed in Great Britain. While 50 pence is not enough for the fairy tale hero’s favorite orange jam, it can be a treasure trove for fans.

One of the two new coins presented by the Royal Mint on Tuesday features St. Paul’s Cathedral in the background, bearing a bear from the “darkest of Peru” and the other posing in front of the famous British capital’s 125-year-old Tower Bridge.
The 50 penny coins are expected to be released in the coming weeks, as part of a series launched to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the fairy tale last year.
The first volume, featuring Paddington, was published in 1958 and quickly became a favorite of children. Michael Bond’s stories were also made into cartoon and film processing. In 2018, the Mint also issued two coins in honor of the bear: at the railway station it was named for, and in front of Buckingham Palace, the UK’s premier London residence.
In addition to the coins, the Mint also issues a collector coin, a £ 10 coin and a £ 850 gold coin.
