‘The Tale of Peter Rabbit’ was Beatrix Potter’s first ‘small book for small hands.’ The story introduced Peter Rabbit, a mischievous bunny, and turned him into a beloved staple in bedtime routines around the world. For over a century, this little rabbit with the blue coat has enchanted generations with his story of adventure and escape from Mr McGregor’s garden. The Royal Mint first released a five 50p coin collection to commemorate Beatrix Potter’s 150th birthday in 2016. Due to its great popularity, a new collection in 2017 was announced. Even though this 50p coin is the second to feature Peter Rabbit, it is the first to spotlight this particular image – the same one used on the cover of the first edition.
Proudly present this coin in its fold-out case, adding charming details and illustrations from Peter’s story with the coin. Emma Noble captures Beatrix’s whimsy and style in this special coin design. Because of its Brilliant Uncirculated standard finish, the fine details of Peter’s fur and folds in his coat are remarkably rendered.
