For a generation of children those words heralded the beginning of another magical adventure for Mr Benn.
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.
The World’s FIRST Mr Benn 50p Coin
Now to mark Mr Benn’s 50th Anniversary, a special 50p coin has been released by Guernsey Treasury – just the sort of coin that Mr Benn would have been certain to “keep carefully just to remind me”.
This nostalgic 50p coin design features an illustration of Mr Benn along with a stylised ‘50’ in the background inspired by Festive Road and has been officially licensed by Mr Benn.
Struck to a superior Brilliant Uncirculated Quality
Struck to the collector’s favourite specification, Brilliant Uncirculated Quality, your coin will arrive free of any of the marks and scratches usually found on circulating coinage.
And what’s more, it will come protectively housed in a presentation card, carefully curated by the coins designer meaning your coin can be safely stored for years to come.
