Following on from the much-loved releases of previous years, Pobjoy Mint is delighted to present a stunning new design for its 2021 fourth edition of Father Christmas™, the character derived from a British Children’s book written and illustrated by Raymond Briggs. The new design is the second Christmas 50 pence issued on behalf of British Indian Ocean Territory.
This famous character first appeared in 1973 in Father Christmas, before making a second appearance in 1975 in Father Christmas Goes on Holiday. In these publications however, Father Christmas is introduced as a rather grumpy interpretation of the stereotypical character.
The design of our 2021 coin is inspired by an illustration from Raymond Briggs’ book, with this year featuring Father Christmas holding his loyal dog with a decorated Christmas Tree in the background. The inscription reads ‘Father Christmas’ and the value ‘FIFTY PENCE’ is shown. Approved by the Licensor and Buckingham Palace, which is very fitting as in the book the last delivery is to the Palace, the obverse of the coin carries the Pobjoy Mint effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
