£1,065.00

Limited Edition 525 gold coins.

Owl is the fifth addition to the collection, which began in 2020, and is captured in one of E. H. Shepard’s original illustrations on a 22 carat gold coin that has been struck to Proof standard. The wise owl is poised to write something terribly important whilst a buzzing bee joins him – a detail that brings together each coin in the collection.

Proof coins are the highest quality commemorative coins. Their sharpness, detail and finish are unrivalled, making them perfect for collectors looking for highest levels of craftsmanship and detail.

The dies used to strike Proof coins are hand-finished to ensure that all imperfections are removed. Blanks are fed into the coin press by hand before being struck up to six times, at a lower speed and with less pressure than other finishes, to preserve the finer details of the design.
