Raymond Briggs authored 'The Snowman,' which was first published in 1978. The book tells its story entirely through illustrations, without any words. In 1982, it was adapted into an animated film and has remained a cherished Christmas classic ever since.
Capital Gains Tax (CGT) is a form of levies imposed on the profit garnered from the sale of assets, such as real estate, investments, and collectibles. In the United Kingdom, the present CGT allowance is £6,000 per annum per individual, which implies that one can earn up to £6,000 from the sale of assets prior to being subject to CGT.
For UK residents, bullion coins which are UK legal tender pound sterling coins are exempt from capital gains tax (CGT).
A proof coin is a type of coin that is produced using a specific minting process that results in a highly polished surface and intricate design details. The coins are designed for collectors and investors who are interested in a high-quality product that showcases superior craftsmanship and minting quality.
Proof coins are typically produced in limited quantities and may feature unique packaging, certificates of authenticity, or other distinguishing characteristics that set them apart from standard coins. Due to their limited production and exceptional finish, proof coins generally command higher prices than regular coins of the same denomination and are highly prized by both collectors and investors.
The obverse of the coin shows the King Charles III uncrowned portrait by Martin Jennings.
This coin bears the legend:
· CHARLES III · D · G · REX · F · D · 50 PENCE · 2023 ·
The reverse of the coin depicts the main characters from 'The Snowman' novel: James and the snowman he built. They are shown dancing in the snow against the backdrop of the Northern Lights at the North Pole. This design is by award-winning illustrator and animator, Robin Shaw.
