Who are the Mr. Men?

Mr. Men is a series of children’s books by English author Roger Hargreaves commencing in 1971.

From 1981, an accompanying series of Little Miss books by the same author but with female characters was published.

After Hargreaves’s death in 1988, his son Adam Hargreaves began writing and illustrating new Mr. Men and Little Miss stories like Mr. Cool, Mr. Rude, Mr. Good, Little Miss Scary, Little Miss Bad,  and Little Miss Whoops.

Adam Hargreaves

Adam Hargreaves said:

‘It is an absolute honour to not only have the Mr Men Little Miss characters’ feature on official UK commemorative coins but to have the opportunity to create the designs that feature on the coins too.

‘Over the past 50 years Mr. Men Little Miss characters’ have grown to become a global favourite among many and I am delighted to be celebrating 50 years of fun with the Royal Mint and I hope fans of the Mr. Men Little Miss series will be just as thrilled with this commemorative coin collection as I am.’
