Peter Rabbit returns on a 2017 UK 50p
Monday, 3 April 2017 | Gareth
The adventurous hero of Beatrix Potter's very first book was so popular that 'The Tale of Peter Rabbit' became the very 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 identified as the symbol of Beatrix Potter's work, popping up in other stories including 'The Tale of Benjamin Bunny'.
This brand-new 50p coin for 2017 is only the second official United Kingdom coin to feature Peter Rabbit. It features among the most well-known pictures of Peter Rabbit, scampering away, maybe on the hunt for more mischief. The 925 sterling silver coin features colour printing, highlighting elements like Peter's signature blue coat. The coin has been finished to Proof standard and can be found in a clear acrylic presentation case.
