Gold Ounce 2021 Mr. Men - Mr. Happy, Coin from United Kingdom
CoinGold Ounce 2021 Mr. Men - Mr. Happy

Like many other mints, the Royal Mint issues bullion coins in precious metals, having much higher intrinsic value than their face value. The one ounce (1 oz) gold coins are denominated as One Hundred Pounds (£100).

The coins are legal tender but are not intended for circulation. They are targeted at bullion investors or collectors who appreciate the special editions as pieces of art. The coins are typically "one-year" types usually issued in parallel with smaller denominations with the same reverse designs.

This 1oz (one-ounce) gold coin is part of a series of coins by the Royal Mint dedicated to Mr. Men characters and features Mr. Happy.

Initially inspired by the simple question of a child - "What does a tickle look like?" - the Mr. Men Little Miss characters have become some of the most instantly recognisable in the world. Featured in more than 90 books, as well as starring in films and TV series, their adventures have been translated into 17 different languages and followed by millions of fans. 2021 marks the 50th anniversary of the question that started it all and the book that answered that question: Mr. Tickle.

Created by prolific illustrator Roger Hargreaves in 1971, the Mr. Men books and their ever-growing world of "Happyland" were an almost instant success. They were soon joined by the characters of the Little Miss series and the exploits of both remain incredibly popular to this day, encouraging children to read and helping family generations to bond.

In 1988, the role of Mr. Men Little Miss illustrator was taken over by Adam Hargreaves - Roger's son and the same inquisitive boy who had asked what a tickle looked like. Adam has exclusively provided the reverse designs for all three of The Royal Mint coins celebrating the characters' 50th anniversary.
