New Paddington Bear 50p enter circulation — here’s what they look like

New 50 pence coins depicting Paddington Bear visiting the Tower of London and St Paul’s Cathedral are set to enter circulation on Tuesday.

The Royal Mint, which makes all the UK’s coins, said the new designs would enter circulation at the Royal Mint Experience in Llantrisant, South Wales, before being more widely stocked around the country in the coming weeks.

The two new coins are part of a series launched last year to mark the 60th anniversary of Paddington Bear, the iconic book character who was first created in 1958 by Michael Bond.
