For the past two decades, families around the world have embraced the tale of a particular terrifying and unusual creature, introduced to us by a quick-thinking little, brown mouse. The Gruffalo, written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler, was first published in 1999 and has since been translated into 76 languages, adapted into an animated film and also for a west-end theatre production. The Gruffalo has proved to be enduringly popular amongst families -the character has evolved into soft toys; appeared on library cards; and starred on woodland nature trails. In 2009 the book was voted the United Kingdom’s favourite bedtime story.
In 2019, The Royal Mint celebrates to 20th anniversary of The Gruffalo with a 50p coin featuring the famous monster in all its orange-eyed, purple-prickled glory. Available as a silver Proof and Brilliant Uncirculated edition, this marks the first time the Gruffalo has featured on an official UK coin.
