Peter Rabbit, the much-loved mischievous bunny

Caught on a silver Proof 50p coin

The adventurous hero of the Beatrix Potter’s first book was so popular that ‘The Tale of Peter Rabbit’ would be the first in a series of 23 little tales. The inquisitive, blue-coated bunny has become the emblem of Beatrix Potter’s work, and is captured on this 50p coin – the first official United Kingdom coin to feature this family favourite.

Now, continuing the series celebrating the wonderful world of Miss Potter, the second coin has been struck as a sterling silver Proof edition. Royal Mint coin designer Emma Noble’s design incorporates colour printing, reflecting the watercolour style of the original illustrations. The coin is presented in a contemporary Perspex presentation case, with an accompanying booklet and gift box to be enjoyed and passed down through the generations, just like the books that inspired it.
