Winnie-the-Pooh is a fictional character that was originally created by author A.A. Milne and illustrated by E.H. Shepard. The Pooh stories were converted into film and television cartoons by The Walt Disney Company and have delighted children and adults alike since the 60s. The first book in the Winnie-the-Pooh series was actually published in the 20s, and the books were popular in their own right before the adaptation to TV and film.

The stories of Winnie-the-Pooh were written by Milne in reference to a teddy bear that his son owned. The little boy in the book is based on Milne’s real-life son, Christopher Robin Milne. The adventures were written based on real places and adventures that Milne imagined his son and the fictional bear would go on together. The charming, imaginative nature of the stories, combined with the cast of really delightful animal characters, was immediately popular with children and enjoyed by adults as well. Milne’s works have left behind a legacy of joy and entertainment that has not been paralleled by many other books or movies. Winnie the Pooh is delightfully happy-go-lucky, and the life lessons that are shared in the books still strike a chord with audiences today.

This beautiful coin has been designed to capture the whimsical and happy nature spirit that is so essential to the Winnie-the-Pooh stories. The minting process makes the coin feel immediate and like a living piece of art. The original art illustrated by English artist, E.H. Shepard is lovingly rendered over the top of the 3d high relief, and the colors are bold, beautiful, and lush.

This piece is crafted with 1 oz of 999 Fine Silver, finished in silver proof with color. Details are engraved in high relief and it is shaped precisely to finish. This is a limited edition of 666 pieces only. Each piece is packaged and delivered with a Certificate verifying its edition number and authenticity.
