Winnie the Pooh and his friends have endured as cherished characters since they first featured in A. A. Milne’s classic stories in 1926. Complemented by E. H. Shepard’s charming and nostalgic illustrations, the stories remain immensely popular. We continue to commemorate these tales and characters with another coin in the popular Disney’s Winnie the Pooh and Friends UK 50p Coin Collection featuring Kanga and Roo.
Their appearance in the Hundred Acre Wood was a mystery at first, but the mother-and-son duo fell into Winnie the Pooh’s close circle of friends as if they’d been there all along. Kanga is mature and level-headed, spending her time nurturing playful, curious Roo, who develops a strong friendship with Tigger, an equally energetic soul.
