Peter Rabbit is one of the most treasured characters in children’s literature, so it’s little surprise that our Peter Rabbit 50p coin collection has proven so popular. The perfect gift for fans of Beatrix Potter, or to celebrate occasions such as christenings or births, the coins all come beautifully presented to be treasured forever.
When Peter Rabbit appeared in the first of Beatrix Potter’s little tales, the mischievous blue-coated bunny was destined to become a star, and went on to appear regularly throughout the book series. He has had a similar presence throughout our Beatrix Potter coin series - ever since we began celebrating her life and works in 2016, Peter has launched the coin range each year. Everyone’s favourite rabbit has been depicted in a different scene every year, followed by characters from other tales on their own coins. Now you can start your 2018 collection with the third official Peter Rabbit 50p coin from The Royal Mint.
The 2018 Peter Rabbit 50p depicts the inquisitive character just as Beatrix Potter painted him. Every detail, from his little blue coat to his long whiskers, has been captured on the coin’s small surface. It shows the iconic image of Peter munching on radishes after another near-miss in Mr. McGregor’s garden. The coin comes in a fold-out case, inspired by Beatrix Potter’s own watercolour illustrations, including more details about the inspiration behind the popular character.
There are several versions of this year’s Peter Rabbit coin to enjoy, from the Brilliant Uncirculated coin up to the Gold Proof standard. Discover the full collection today.
