Peter Rabbit returns on a new 2018 UK 50p
Monday, 19 February 2018 | Gareth
When The Royal Mint developed a collection of 50p coins to commemorate the birth of Beatrix Potter in 2016, it's maybe not unexpected that Peter Rabbit was one of the most popular coins in the series. Given that then, Peter Rabbit has actually been illustrated in new 50 pence coins each year, followed by characters from the tales on their own coins.
The Peter Rabbit coin for 2018 is of the popular picture of Peter Rabbit chomping on radishes drawn from Mr. McGregor's garden. The renowned illustration is brought to life with colour printing on this sterling silver coin, which is finished to the finest Proof requirement. Each coin is available in a clear acrylic case for safekeeping and is accompanied by details on the character and quotes from Beatrix's initial tales.
