Celebrate Beatrix Potter and her tales

The first 50p coin in the captivating new series

The world of Beatrix Potter was filled with a love of nature that was clear in her scientific studies, passion for conservation, and most famously in her little tales. These books, based on animal characters, have a charming quality that never dates. It is no wonder that they have been happily passed down through generations – small books for small hands, but all the more fun when read together with a loved one. To celebrate the 150th anniversary of her birth, The Royal Mint is honouring Beatrix with a series of 50p coins.

This series begins with a coin struck to remember Beatrix herself. Experienced Royal Mint engraver, Emma Noble , has included elements that celebrate her as the artist behind some of the best-loved characters in children’s literature. This Brilliant Uncirculated 50p coin comes in a fold-out wallet, decorated in the style of Beatrix’s own illustrations, which explores her life, her loves and her legacy.
