In 2016, the Royal Mint struck five beautiful coins to celebrate the 150th birthday of Beatrix Potter. Due to the great popularity and nation’s love for Beatrix’s wonderful characters, the Great British Coin Hunt brings four more coins for 2017. This year’s series brings back Peter Rabbit and three new characters: Mr Jeremy Fisher, Tom Kitten, and Benjamin Bunny.
The Beatrix Potter 2017 50p coin collector album will not only keep your finds safe and secure, but it’s also a great way to exhibit these four exquisitely detailed coins. The album also comes with information about the talented author and includes some of Beatrix’s own watercolour illustrations. The British author has become world renowned for her children’s stories such as ‘The Tale of Peter Rabbit’ and ‘The Tale of Benjamin Bunny’. She started drawing as a child and eventually became the illustrator for her own stories. Celebrate this gifted author and artist with this album presenting some of her beloved characters.
