Peter Rabbit on a new 50p coin for 2017
The Star of the Little Tales
‘The Tale of Peter Rabbit’ was the first of Beatrix Potter’s little tales and introduced the mischievous blue-coated bunny to the world. Generations of children have enjoyed Peter’s antics and the story of his escape from Mr. McGregor’s vegetable garden.
For 2017 Emma Noble has captured one of the most iconic images of Peter, hopping away on one of his adventures. The coin has been finished to Brilliant Uncirculated standard – a finer finish than those you’ll find in circulation. The packaging that accompanies the coin is decorated in the style of Beatrix’s own watercolour illustrations and filled with more stories about this famous bunny.
