The Icon of Beatrix Potter’s Work

The adventurous hero of Beatrix Potter’s first book was so popular that ‘The Tale of Peter Rabbit’ became the first in a series of 23 ‘small books for small hands’. The inquisitive bunny is no doubt the star of the little tales and is widely recognised as the emblem of Beatrix Potter’s work, popping up in other stories including ‘The Tale of Benjamin Bunny’.

This 50p coin for 2017 is the second official United Kingdom coin to feature Peter Rabbit. It features one of the most famous images of Peter Rabbit™, scampering away, perhaps on the hunt for more mischief. The 925 sterling silver coin features colour printing, highlighting elements like Peter’s signature blue jacket. The coin has been finished to Proof standard and comes in a clear acrylic presentation case.

Peter Rabbit: 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.
