Wallace and Gromit 50p coins are expected to arrive in the UK today. The new coins were launched by The Royal Mint and will surely bring joy to fans of the animation. Royal Mint is issuing a glossy 50p coin with an uncirculated finish, a gold proof coin and a color version.
On a big day off, Wallace and Gromit are forced to go to the moon after they run out of cheese and find that the corner store is closed as it is a bank holiday.
Royal Mint said: "Two very special visitors are due to arrive at The Royal Mint on October 29, 2019, 30 years after being first on screen and entering the heart of the country."
The announcement was made on October 11, and since then coin collectors have been eagerly awaited.
The currency is set to be sold in a currency presentation.
Coin fans had the opportunity to register their interest in coins by launching today.
The beloved characters will be seen side by side on the coin, with Wallace lovingly looking at his dog comparison.
The inscriptions "caseus prasetans" are on the other side of the coin, meaning "excellent cheese" in Latin, Wallace's famous slogan.
The obverse of the coin was designed by Jody Clark.
Another new 50p coin soon set in the UK is the Brexit 50x coin.
