Gold Lady Hilary - victim of the credit crunch ??? (April 10, 2009)
In 2006 NatWest commissioned Wade to produce a limited edition (250) of gold Woody pigs, followed by gold Annabel pigs (400) in 2007 and gold Maxwell pigs (400) in 2008. These limited editions coincided with the 'ISA' season in the earlier part of each year and, given that this year's 'ISA' season is over, the question that many collectors have been asking is whether or not there will be any more limited edition gold pigs ? We have spoken to both NatWest and Wade and understand that a gold Lady Hilary will not be produced in 2009. In 2008 RBS/NatWest made large losses as a result of the 'credit crunch' and has recently announced 15,000+ job losses.
