The fourth coin in the series that celebrates the wonderful world of Miss Potter features the conscientious hedgehog, Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle, dressed in gown and petticoats, a prickly washerwoman. More than 100 years after her story was first published, she still captures the hearts of readers today. Depicted on this 50p coin – the first official United Kingdom coin to feature Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle – the hedgehog is instantly recognisable, with every quill captured in fine detail in the coin’s Brilliant Uncirculated finish.
Series artist and Royal Mint engraver, Emma Noble has made sure that Beatrix’s characters are at the centre of each coin, achieving a delicate balance between character and inscription, their famous names clear for all to see. Presented in fold-out packaging inspired by Beatrix’s own beautiful illustrations, the coin will take its place alongside the rest of the collection.
