Why purchase this flawless 2018 Great Britain Paddington Bear Colorized Silver Proof?
Michael Bond's book, "A Bear Called Paddington," was released in 1958, delighting children with the tale of a bear from Peru that was found alone in Paddington Station and adopted by the Brown family. The Royal Mint is commemorating Paddington Bear's 60th Anniversary with the release of a two coin series. This selectively colorized silver proof is the second design of the series, struck from 8 grams of .925 fine silver, its mintage limited to 75,000.
