Making Mischief

Beatrix Potter’s The Tale of Peter Rabbit turns 120 in 2022. To celebrate the occasion, we have struck a special UK coin featuring the mischievous little bunny.

Discover one of the Talented Little Mice from ‘The Tailor of Gloucester’

For more than 100 years, readers have been captivated by the adventures of the charming creatures of Beatrix Potter’s world. In 2016, in the year of the 150th anniversary of her birth, we began a coin collection celebrating Beatrix Potter and four characters from her little tales. With many generations enjoying these small reminders of childhood, the popularity of Beatrix Potter and her stories proved to be as strong as ever, and the collection continues in 2018.

The latest release in this year’s series depicts one of the helpful little mice from the story, sitting cross-legged on a cotton reel, complete with newspaper and tiny glasses the tailor of gloucester 50p. Every detail of Beatrix Potter’s original illustration is perfected by our Brilliant Uncirculated finish, a finer standard than circulating coins. Each coin is presented in fold-out packaging inspired by Beatrix Potter’s own illustrations.
