The Tailor of Gloucester 50p Coin Collection | The Royal Mint

The Tailor of Gloucester™ 50p Coins

Beatrix Potter is one of the most celebrated children’s authors of all time, and 2016 marked 100 years since her birth. To celebrate this milestone, The Royal Mint released a limited edition set of commemorative 50p coins. These have proven so popular that the collection has continued to grow each year, and the Tailor of Gloucester™ 50p coins were introduced in 2018 to the series.

The Tailor of Gloucester™ was published in 1903, and was reportedly Beatrix Potter’s favourite tale. The 50p coins depict one of the helpful mice from the story, who work to finish the tailor’s waistcoat after he rescues them from his cat. Beatrix Potter’s original illustration is beautifully brought to life on both the coin and packaging.

The Tailor of Gloucester™ 50p coins are the perfect gifts for old and young fans of Beatrix Potter alike. They’re also wonderful collector items, with the beautiful packaging ensuring they can be kept in their pristine condition.
