To celebrate the 150th birthday of gifted author and illustrator Beatrix Potter in 2016, the Royal Mint struck five beautiful coins, much to the delight of coin collectors everywhere. Every year since then, a new set has been released, each with a special version of Peter Rabbit, Beatrix’s beloved mischievous rabbit. 2018 presents Peter Rabbit happily munching on radishes, the reason why he was nearly caught by Mr McGregor in his story, ‘The Tale of Peter Rabbit.’
Adoring fans will love to see the little details of Peter’s blissful expression highlighted by the Brilliant Uncirculated standard finish. The coin comes in an informative fold-out case, presenting the coin among Beatrix’s other illustrations as well as facts and excerpts from Peter’s story. This third Peter Rabbit coin was designed by Emma Noble, the artist behind all of the Beatrix Potter coins. The obverse displays the fifth definitive portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark.
