Every Steiff bear tells a story. And what story is as compelling as that of Margarete Steiff, the founder of our company? It is with great pride that we offer a series of special Teddy bears, accompanied by commemorative medals, to honour her memory and legacy.
Available in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, these limited editions will appeal to both arctophiles and numismatists – collectors of Teddy bears and precious coins respectively. The series began in 2014 with the introduction of the Teddy bear with a copper-nickel medal (production limited to three years) and with a bronze medal (limited edition of 1,000 pieces), both sewn from the finest alpaca plush. They were followed in 2015 by the Teddy bear with a silver medal (limited edition of 1,000 pieces) and are now joined by the Teddy bear with a gold medal (limited edition of 1,000 pieces) in 2016.
All the bears feature a unique metallic-coloured cross-stitch on their noses that matches their commemorative medals. Why not join us in paying tribute to the heritage of Margarete Steiff with this rare and valuable collectible series?
