Beano Coronation Number

Post by babington »

At this time of Royal Weddings I got to thinking - am I right to say there was no Beano coronation special issue back in May/June 1953? The Dandy seems to have done one (issue 602), and lots of other comics did. But I can't see a coronation Beano. I wonder why they missed out. Or did they?

This is probably it, issue 565, May 16th 1953 - mentions something about winning a coronation five shilling coin. ... 00-279223/
