Fans of our Beatrix Potter series will be delighted by the latest addition for 2018. Our Flopsy Bunny 50p coins are the perfect gift for new babies, christenings or those who are simply still enchanted by the magic of Beatrix Potter’s classic stories and characters.
The love of the ‘small books for small hands’ has been passed down through generations, delighting readers across the world to this very day. Following the success of ‘The Tale of Peter Rabbit’, the author and illustrator returned to rabbits for several of her little tales. She knew that the adventurous bunnies were firm favourites with her young readers, and ‘The Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies’, published in 1909, is a well-loved classic.
Continuing our series celebrating the life and work of Beatrix Potter, Flopsy Bunny is the third rabbit – after Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny - to be featured on a UK 50p coin. With three options available, including Brilliant Uncirculated and Silver Proof standards, you can choose the coin or gift set that’s perfect for you.
For this new Flopsy Bunny 50p coin, the rabbit is pictured wearing her recognisable little cape, which has been highlighted by colour printing. The coin has been struck in sterling silver and finished to our pristine Proof standard. This is part of a Limited Edition presentation and comes in a clear display case with a booklet exploring the world of the Flopsy Bunnies.
