Celebrating More Characters from Beatrix Potter’s Little Tales
When The Royal Mint first commemorated this iconic writer, it was little surprise that Peter Rabbit was one of the most popular characters in the Beatrix Potter 50p collection. Each year, the lovable rabbit has been depicted in a different scene that represents one of his daring adventures.
Each year since the first coin set, Peter has been joined by a range of other familiar faces. Beatrix Potter is famous for writing and illustrating 23 little tales, filled with characters that have enchanted readers for more than a century. Jeremy Fisher, Benjamin Bunny and Tom Kitten are three such characters, and were celebrated on the 50p coins released in 2017.
In 2018, the faces to join our popular Beatrix Potter series were Flopsy Bunny, Mrs Tittlemouse, and the helpful mouse from The Tailor of Gloucester alongside the 2018 Peter Rabbit coin!
