Capture the magic of a timeless children’s classic!

Soaring through the night sky high above the frozen countryside, a little boy and his snowman embark on an unforgettable adventure. Raymond Briggs’ enchanting story has become a fixture of childhood, a moment of shared wonder but tinged with sadness at the realisation that nothing lasts forever.

First published in 1978, The Royal Mint has struck a 22 carat gold Proof 50p coin to celebrate the 40th anniversary of this timeless children’s classic. Presented in a beautiful gift box, it’s the perfect way to capture the magic of this charming wordless picture book for each new generation.
