Beatrix Potter’s lovable rogue, Squirrel Nutkin, on a 50p coin

Completing the collectable series

This series that celebrates the wonderful world of Miss Potter continues following the popular coin featuring Peter Rabbit. This time, The Royal Mint has chosen one of the naughtiest of Beatrix’s characters, Squirrel Nutkin. The flaws of Beatrix Potter’s characters may get them into trouble, but also make them so delightful, and Squirrel Nutkin is one of her most ill-mannered. So many will have developed a soft spot for the cheeky little squirrel when reading the cautionary tale of how he came to lose half his tail. 

Now, the playful character is depicted for the first time ever on an official United Kingdom coin. Struck in sterling silver to Proof standard, Royal Mint engraver Emma Noble’s design incorporates colour printed elements, reflecting the watercolour style of the original illustrations. The coin comes with a booklet inspired by Beatrix’s own work and is presented in a contemporary Perspex presentation case.
