2023 UK 50p The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe Silver Proof
An absolute classic volume by C.S. Lewis, the tales from Narnia have, of course, been turned into Hollywood films... but it is the original stories, the books, that are most evocative. Particularly that of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. Who doesn't recall stumbling across this one in their school library, and being utterly entranced by the kids that step into the wardrobe, through to the land of Narnia?
This official UK, Royal Mint 50p pays tribute to this magnificent fantasy tale and, perfectly, it uses an actual image from the original publication in 1950. Featuring that image in full colour, each 50p will be housed in a typically high quality Royal Mint perspex presentation case..
