On 4th November the iconic stop-motion duo Wallace and Gromit will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of their silver screen debut in A Grand Day Out. And to mark the occasion a BRAND NEW UK 50p coin has been authorised for release.
This is the first time the pair have appeared on a UK coin. First editions such as this are always incredibly popular with collectors and fans alike, and fast become some of the most sought-after coins around.
On the reverse you’ll find Wallace and Gromit smiling from the window of the rocket they use in A Grand Day Out to fly to the moon in search of cheese. Their love of cheese is even captured in Latin above the window: “CASEUS PRAESTANS”, meaning “cracking cheese”.
What's more, the design is by the creator of Wallace and Gromit – Nick Park himself! The obverse features the fifth definitive portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark.
Struck by The Royal Mint to a pristine Brilliant Uncirculated finish, your coin will arrive in its official Royal Mint presentation pack, which has been designed to seem as if Wallace and Gromit are blasting off into space.
The rocket, containing your coin moves, and attaches to the pop-out BU pack by a hidden magnet. The innovative packaging is sure to delight all who secure this coin for their collection.
