Own the WORLD’S FIRST Rupert Bear Gold Proof 50p – only 250 available worldwide


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, a brand new Isle of Man Rupert Bear Gold Proof 50p coin has been released.

Own the FIRST EVER Rupert Bear Gold Proof 50p

The coin has been struck from 22 Carat Gold to an immaculate Proof finish – the best possible finish available on a coin. The reverse features a stunning illustration of Rupert Bear exactly as he appears in the famous comic series.

Just 250 available worldwide – sell-out expected

An extremely limited worldwide mintage of JUST 250 has been set for this new release, a significantly low amount. To put that into perspective, that's LESS THAN HALF the 2019 UK Gruffalo Gold Proof 50p that sold out within hours of its launch last year. 

Given the sought-after nature of new Gold Proof 50p releases and the popularity of Rupert Bear, a national treasure, demand is expected to exceed availability. Anyone interested in securing one will have to act quickly as they won't be around for long. 

Each coin will arrive ready to display in a deluxe presentation case with accompanying numbered certificate of authenticity, confirming its place in the strict edition limit.
