The Mr Benn 50p Coin Collection
World’s First Mr Benn 50p Coins
Incredibly it’s been 50 years since the postman first arrived at No 52 Festive Road with Mr Benn’s invitation to a fancy dress party… and so started his first adventure. Since then Mr Benn has fascinated millions of children with his adventures as he walked through that magical changing room doorway.
Discover Mr Benn’s adventures bought to life on FIVE 50ps
Now to mark Mr Benn’s 50th Anniversary, a special set of five official British Isles 50p coins have been released by the government of Guernsey – just the sort of collection that Mr Benn would have been certain to “keep carefully just to remind me”.
Officially licensed by Mr Benn, the complete set features four of Mr Benn’s most popular adventures – the Red Knight, Clown, Cook and Spaceman alongside the centrepiece coin – the official Mr Benn 50th Anniversary design itself.
