The children's classic tales are set in Ashdown Forest in Sussex, where Pooh and his many friends would spend their days.

Ashdown Forest where the stories were set

This is the latest in a series of nine Pooh coins by the Royal Mint to mark the 95th anniversary of the original Winnie-the-Pooh stories in the Hundred Acre Wood.

A closer look at the coin design

The children's classics feature Winnie-the-Pooh, Piglet, Tigger and the design of the coin is inspired by the original decorations of E.H. Shepard taken from the pages of A.A. Milne's tales, first published in 1926.

It was designed by Daniel Thorne from the Royal Mint

The collectable 50 pence coin is a fitting tribute to a much loved bear.
