First announced in 2016, the Royal Mint celebrated Beatrix Potter’s 150th birthday with a series of five special coins featuring characters from her beloved stories. Due to their popularity, the following year brought a new set of coins with presenting more of Beatrix’s wonderful characters. For 2018, the third series of the Beatrix Potter coins features Flopsy Bunny among the three new characters.
Flopsy Bunny is Peter Rabbit’s sister and wife to Benjamin Bunny (who was featured in 2017’s coin series). The little bunny was introduced in the story “The Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies,” where Flopsy and Benjamin’s six children get caught by Mr McGregor after falling asleep in his garden. The coin’s design features Flopsy’s iconic cape in brilliant uncirculated finish. The fold-out case shows Beatrix’s Flopsy illustration in full colour along with other fun facts and illustrations from the story. Flopsy Bunny is designed by Emma Noble and the obverse has Jody Clark’s fifth definitive portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II.
