Why purchase this delightful 8 gram silver heptagonal 2021 Great Britain The Snowman colorized GEM Proof coin?

In 2018, The Royal Mint of Great Britain introduced a commemorative coin series in tribute to the 40th anniversary of The Snowman™, a wordless children's picture book by British author Raymond Briggs. The Snowman illustrates the tale of a boy who builds a snowman that comes to life. The pair enjoys a night of adventure, before the snowman melts in the rising sun.

  • This 2021 dated coin is the fourth release of The Snowman series.
  • The coin is struck from .925 fine silver (sterling) with a weight of 8 grams.
  • The 27.30 mm diameter coin is heptagonal in shape (seven sided).
  • The coin is minted with a proof finish, featuring delicately frosted design elements and mirrored fields.
  • The coin's reverse design is highlighted with beautiful colorization.
  • The coin will arrive in its original Mint package.
  • Mintage is limited to only 8,010 pieces.

An Enchanting Winter Scene

Obverse: The obverse is adorned with a likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in a right facing pose. Surrounding inscriptions include "ELIZABETH II," "D.G. REG. F.D.," "50 PENCE" and "2021." This effigy, officially recognized as the fifth definitive coinage portrait of the monarch, is an example of the artistry of Jody Clark, an acclaimed sculptor for the Royal Mint since 2012.

Reverse: The reverse features an enchanting rendition of the boy reaching up to draw a smile on his newly created Snowman friend, as snowflakes fall from the sky around them. The heartwarming image was crafted exclusively for the coin by award-winning British illustrator and animator Robin Shaw.
