Tom Kitten 50p
In Beatrix Potter’s eleventh tale, ‘The Tale of Tom Kitten,’ Tom Kitten and his two sisters get into trouble with their mother when they return to the house completely dirty. To make things even worse, the passing Puddle-Ducks had taken the kittens’ fine clothes, eventually losing them in a pond. This delightful story has been captivating readers for a little over 100 years. The Royal Mint has been celebrating Beatrix’s characters such as Tom Kitten since 2016, releasing coins that feature characters from her loved stories. Tom Kitten is a part of the series for 2017, his coin showing the scene where he was forced into clothing that’s much too small.
