In the collecting world, it doesn’t get better than commemoratives combining the Official Royal Mint and Royal Mail releases celebrating the same iconic theme… in this case, The Gruffalo!
Today you have the chance to own the ultimate collector’s tribute to children’s classic The Gruffalo, featuring all ten of the brand-new Official UK 2019 Gruffalo Stamps and both of the 2019 UK Gruffalo 50p coins in one of the most special and strictly limited commemoratives available…
Official New UK 2019 50p Release
Commemorative 50p coins celebrate the most important themes in British culture, so it is unsurprising that that Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s modern classic The Gruffalo, has become a collector sensation, worthy of a place on the 50p!
The first 50p, issued earlier this year, features a striking design of The Gruffalo himself, while the second 50p, JUST RELEASED, features an intricate design of The Gruffalo and Mouse against the backdrop of the deep, dark wood we know so well!
Both coins have been struck to a Brilliant Uncirculated quality, the superior finish that brings every detail to life and it means your coins will be free from the blemishes of circulating coins.
Both coins have proven to be immensely sought-after and the sell-out history of the first coin has made the second release one of the most highly anticipated coins of the year!
Official first-day-of-issue Gruffalo Stamps
In celebration of the 20th anniversary of The Gruffalo, Royal Mail have issued a set of Official UK stamps celebrating one of the finest examples of children’s literature in recent years.
The stamps feature new artwork by the original illustrator Axel Scheffler and depict a chronological story across 6 stamps of Mouse’s encounters with The Gruffalo, as well as four individual stamps celebrating your forest favourites!
The stamps have been officially postmarked with the first day of issue – 10th October 2019 – meaning your stamps will forever be identified as a first-day release.
Officially Licenced, Limited Edition Presentation – Just 2,019 worldwide!
Your exclusively curated Gruffalo stamp and 50p coin set has been officially licensed by Magic Light Pictures Ltd, making this the definitive 20th anniversary collector piece for any Gruffalo fan or collector.

What’s more, each set comes complete with an individually numbered certificate of authenticity, confirming its place within the strict edition limit of just 2,019 worldwide!
