Returning in 2021 with a brand-new design by the award-winning illustrator and animator Robin Shaw, The SnowmanTM UK 50p Coin celebrates a timeless festive classic.
Created by Raymond Briggs in 1978, The Snowman has become synonymous with the Christmas period, with the popular film adaptation starring David Bowie broadcast by Channel 4 on Christmas Eve every year. The tale’s original message revolves around mortality and the transience of life but the story itself has become ageless. Its heart-warming tone is perhaps no better embodied than by Robin Shaw’s exclusive design for this year’s coin, which depicts the little boy drawing a smile on the face of his new friend.
This UK 50p coin is a magical way of celebrating the enduring spirit of Christmas through a much-loved festive tale.
