The souvenir coin celebrates the 40th anniversary of the hit sitcom Only Fools and Horses about wheeler dealer brothers Del Boy and Rodney, starring Sir David Jason
Those jerks Del Boy and Rodney are finally imprinting it.
A souvenir has been minted to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Only Fools and Horses – and costs almost 20 nickers.
The show about the Trotter brothers and their pals in Peckham, south London, is regularly voted the best TV sitcom of all time.
The £19.99 limited edition medal features Del’s iconic three-wheeled van on one side and his slogan “By this time next year we’ll be millionaires!”. on the other.
And some of Del’s most notorious shady deals, including the launch of Peckham Spring Water and attempts to sell alpine ski suits at Peckham Market, are featured in an illustrated fact sheet.
Only Fools and Horses, starring Sir David Jason and Nicholas Lyndhurst, premiered in September 1981 and ran for 64 episodes through Christmas 2003.
The show, which focuses on Del and Rodney’s crazy plans to get rich, holds the record for the most-watched comedy in 1996 with 24.3 million viewers.
The cozy souvenir coin can be purchased through the Royal Mint’s website – and fans will be eager to say ‘Bonjour’ to one.
Tim Keevill, who shares a Robin Reliant with Del, says his TV hero welcomed the medal as a money-making opportunity.
The 57-year-old from Bridgend, South Wales, joked: “He would be at the market with his Uncle Albert selling them as real war medals.”
But it won’t be legal tender — not even at Del’s beloved Nag’s Head.
