A Helpful Little Mouse from 'The Tailor of Gloucester' Captured in Colour
Beatrix Potter’s timeless stories and illustrations have captured the imagination of generations of readers, following the adventures of her charming creatures with big personalities throughout 23 little tales. In 2016 we began a celebration of the life and work of the ever-popular Beatrix Potter; ‘The Tailor of Gloucester’ is the latest tale to be celebrated in this year’s collection.
The design captures the narrative of the tale with an iconic image from the book. One of the helpful little mice sits cross-legged on a reel of ‘twist’, complete with miniature spectacles and a newspaper. Beatrix Potter’s original illustration is faithfully captured with colour printing on this sterling silver coin, which is finished to Proof standard. Part of a Limited Edition Presentation of just 30,000, each coin comes in a clear acrylic presentation case with a booklet filled with more information on the inspiration behind the story.
