Royal Mint announces release of Gruffalo coin. And a ‘Where’s Wally?’ coin with David Cameron’s face on it

The Royal Mint has released a special 50 pence coin to mark the 20th anniversary of the beloved children’s literary character, the Gruffalo. 

The organisation are planning to follow this up with a coin referencing another childhood favourite, but with a slightly tongue in cheek twist – a ‘Where’s Wally?’ pound coin with David Cameron’s grinning mug beneath the character’s trademark stripy hat.

The coins are not being released into circulation, so the only way to get your hands on one is through the Royal Mint website. 

In fact, after Brexit, it is predicted that the only way to get your hands on any money at all will be either by paying through the nose on the Royal Mint website or catching rats to sell to your neighbours for food.

The 50p Gruffalo coin will be available for £10.

The David Cameron pound coin will only cost 35p however, mostly due to the value of the pound plummeting this low after the former Conservative leader called a referendum on Britain’s membership of the EU in the first place.

It is thought that the demand for coins will be high, as the instantly recognisable monster is familiar to millions. As is The Gruffalo.
