    How cute is this..

    Paddington Bear will be on the back of a 50p coin. Don't know if the coins will be in general circulation, I get the impression they might be limited edition collectors coins.

    I quite agree!

    Plus, his voice was soooooo wrong! (Imo).

    I wouldn't mind one of those coins!





    Edit..... it said this:

    The coins will be available in a range of finishes and prices will start at 10 for a mint condition coin.

    So I reckon they will be in general circulation, but if you want a mint one or a fancy coloured or plated one, it will be the Collectors' thing.
