Can You Find Peter and His Friends?
Collect the latest Beatrix Potter characters from the little tales
In 2016, the year of the 150th anniversary of Beatrix Potter’s birth, The Royal Mint struck a series of coins to celebrate the life and works of the much-loved author. With both young and old enjoying these small reminders of childhood, the love of Beatrix and her stories proved to be as strong as ever, and the collection has continued to grow with new characters introduced each year. In 2018, a radish-munching Peter Rabbit is joined by three new characters – Flopsy Bunny, Mrs. Tittlemouse and a helpful mouse from ‘The Tailor of Gloucester’.
The Beatrix Potter 2018 Collector Album is a fun opportunity to get involved in The Great British Coin Hunt. Throughout the year, the four Beatrix Potter characters for 2018 will be released as circulating coins. Can you find them all? Look out for all four designs – check your change, ask a friend for help, empty your coin jars and put the coins in your new album as you go. You can swap coins and share collecting tips on social media using #coinhunt.
