Own the WORLD’S FIRST Silver Proof Rupert Bear 50p


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 this year.

And to celebrate this exciting centenary anniversary, the Isle of Man have issued a Rupert Bear Silver 50p Coin.

Own the WORLD’S FIRST Rupert Bear Silver Proof 50p

Struck impeccably from .925 Sterling Silver to a beautiful Proof finish, the coin features a full colour illustration of Rupert Bear exactly as he appears in the famous comic strip series. While the obverse features a portrait of Her Majesty the Queen designed by engraver Jody Clark.

Sell-out expected

Silver Proof 50p’s such as this have a rapid sell-out history, making them some of the most sought-after issues around. In fact, we've seen new releases with edition limits as high as 25,000 selling out in a matter of hours. 

This release has a strict edition limit of JUST 4,950 worldwide – a significantly low amount given the popularity of Rupert Bear that spans across generations. Clearly demand will exceed availability and anyone interested in securing this impressive new issue will have to act quickly as a sell-out is expected.

Each coin will arrive ready to display in a deluxe Presentation Case with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
