Caught on a Silver Proof 50p coin

The adventurous hero of the Beatrix Potter’s first book was so popular that ‘The Tale of Peter Rabbit’ would be the first in a series of 23 little tales. The inquisitive, blue-coated bunny has become the emblem of Beatrix Potter’s work, and is captured on this 50p coin – the first official United Kingdom coin to feature this family favourite.

Continuing the series celebrating the wonderful world of Miss Potter, the second coin has been struck as a sterling silver Proof edition. Royal Mint coin designer Emma Noble’s design incorporates colour printing, reflecting the watercolour style of the original illustrations. The coin is presented in a contemporary Perspex presentation case, with an accompanying booklet and gift box to be enjoyed and passed down through the generations, just like the books that inspired it.

When buying Proof coins, always make sure the seller has and is including the original Certificate of Authenticity or COA. This is a uniquely numbered document from The Royal Mint confirming the coin is real.
