Rupert Bear is a children’s cartoon character who first appeared in a comic strip in the Daily Express newspaper on the 8th November 1920. He was designed and written by the English artist, Mary Tourtel.
The comic strip is still published daily in the Express, with many stories later being published in books. The series was so successful that an annual has been released every year since 1936.
The current comic strip is written and designed by Stuart Trotter.
The obverse bears a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark. The legend reads:
2020 QUEEN ELIZABETH II ISLE OF MAN
The reverse shows Rupert Bear in a field, with his hometown of Nutwood in the background. It was designed by Matt Tindall.
