Rupert Bear was created in 1920 by Mary Tourtel as a cartoon for the Daily Express newspaper and his adventures continue up to this day, celebrating his 100th anniversary in 2020.
And to celebrate this exciting centenary anniversary, the Isle of Man have issued the FIRST EVER collection of Rupert Bear 50p Coins.
Own the WORLD'S FIRST Rupert Bear 50p Coins
The coins have been struck to a Brilliant Uncirculated quality, a superior finish sought-after by collectors. Each features a specially commissioned design depicting some of the best-loved characters from the comic strip, including:
- Rupert Bear
- Podgy Pig
- Bill Badger
- Edward Trunk
- Algy Pug
Importantly, this set is one of the only ways you can own ALL FIVE coins in superior Brilliant Uncirculated quality. Other than the Rupert Bear 50p, none of the designs are available to purchase individually.
The Collector’s Favourite – last stocks remaining
The 50p has firmly established itself as the collector’s favourite, and as such demand for this Rupert Bear 50p collection has been incredibly high. It's not surprising really, especially when you consider the iconic status of Rupert Bear and his broad appeal across generations.
What’s more, these 50p coins are legal tender on the Isle of Man and 25,000 of each design have been issued into circulation. British Isles 50p coins like this however rarely turn up in your change in the UK, making these 50p's some of the most sought-after circulating coins around.
Only few remain, so this could be the last opportunity to secure all five Rupert Bear 50p coins.
