The Royal Mint launched the commemorative coins celebrating the 20th anniversary of the literary monster The Gruffalo.
The Gruffalo is a children's book by writer and playwright Julia Donaldson, illustrated by Axel Scheffler, that tells the story of a mouse, the protagonist of the book, taking a walk in a European forest. It was penned for readers aged three to seven, and is about 700 words long. It is written in rhyming couplets, featuring repetitive verse with minor variance. The book has sold over 13 million copies, has won several prizes for children's literature, and has been developed into plays on both the West End and Broadway and even an Oscar nominated animated film.
The silver Proof editions of the coin are decorated with colour printing, reminding us of the original bright and fun illustrations from the book. The coin comes in a beautifully decorated acrylic block that places the pair in the deep, dark wood.
