Design details walking in the air....(flying)

2018 sees the 40th Anniversary of the much loved Snowman, The Snowman is a children's picture book without words by English author Raymond Briggs, first published in 1978, the story is told through pictures, action and music, scored by Howard Blake. It is wordless like the book, except for the song "Walking in the Air". In addition to the orchestral score, performed in the film by the Sinfonia of London, Blake composed the music and lyrics of the song, performed by Peter Auty, a St Paul's Cathedral choirboy. The coin will not be released into circulation which is a real shame.
