Peter Rabbit™

The Famous Rabbit in the Little Blue Coat

Peter Rabbit’s mischievous visits to Mr. McGregor’s garden lead to all sorts of trouble for the little bunny – but he can’t seem to resist the delicious vegetables the gardener grows! Radishes are perhaps his favourite, and the new 2018 Peter Rabbit 50p coin shows him munching on the treat just as he does in ‘The Tale of Peter Rabbit’, the first book in the series that was published.

Beatrix Potter had a pet bunny called Peter Piper as a child – he was her second rabbit after Benjamin Bouncer, who became famous in his own tale, Beatrix’s fourth book. Peter appears in six tales altogether, revisiting Mr. McGregor’s garden with his friend Benjamin Bunny. He also makes an appearance in ‘The Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies’, now with a more grown-up approach to gardening. In the tale, Peter Rabbit has his own vegetable patch where he grows cabbages, although not enough to feed the Flopsy Bunnies!
