Beatrix Potter, 2018 a New 50p coin Featuring Peter Rabbit Silver Proof 'The Mischieous Bunny in Colour
When The Royal Mint created a collection of 50p coins to celebrate the birth of Beatrix Potter in 2016, it's perhaps not surprising that Peter Rabbit was one of the most popular coins in the series. Since then, Peter Rabbit has been depicted in a different scene each year, followed by characters from the tales on their own coins. Peter Rabbit appeared in the first of Beatrix Potter's little tales and his daring adventures set the scene for the stories that would follow. The love of these 'small books in small hands' has been passed down through generations of readers, and are as popular as ever across the world today.
