In 2016 a series of four designs were released to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the birth of Beatrix Potter, creator of the Peter Rabbit stories. So popular were they, a further four were released in 2017, four more in 2018, and then again in 2019.
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’. No doubt the star of the tales is the mischievous but lovable fluffy rabbit Peter who is widely recognised as a symbol of Beatrix Potter’s work, popping up in other stories including ‘The Tale of Benjamin Bunny’ with his cousin Benjamin. This 2017 50p coin is only the second official United Kingdom coin to feature Peter Rabbit. Featuring one of the most famous images of Peter Rabbit™, scampering away, perhaps on the hunt for more adventures, the 925 sterling silver coin features colour printing and highlighting features like Peter’s signature blue jacket.
