All our Christmases have come at once with the release of a new set of panto-themed 50p coins

They're behind you!

If Christmas coffees, advent calendars and Grinch pyjamas haven't convinced that the holidays are coming, then surely this will.

News reaches Ent Daily that a set of brand-new 50p pieces have been released.

And, what's more, they depict scenes from the nation's favourite pantomimes.

Oh yes they do!

The sad news is, the coins are only going to be legal tender in Guernsey, so the chances of you finding some in your loose change are slim to none.
