The fourth issue in this iconic series is the Paddington™ at St Paul’s Cathedral 50p, struck from fine Silver to an immaculate Proof finish. The reverse of the coin features an intricate, full colour image of Paddington™ tipping his iconic red hat to the historic St Paul’s Cathedral, designed with impressive detail in the background.

Sell-out history…

JUST 25,000 of these Silver Proof versions have been released, that's a tiny number, especially when you consider that's the same edition limit as the SELL-OUT Gruffalo Silver Proof 50p. In fact, the Gold Proof version of ALL THREE previous coins in the Paddington™ 50p series has completely SOLD OUT and this one is already over 65% SOLD at the Mint! 

All signs suggest that this will go the same way, so if you'd like to harness the 50p collecting storm you'll need to be quick. Especially as we currently have just 50 available for collectors and fans! Add yours to basket today to avoid missing out.
