Commemorative Coin Series
The Beatrix Potter-created children’s book characters are honoured in a unique coin series, which includes the 50p Peter Rabbit coin.
Over several years, these commemorative coins were released in batches. A well-known figure from Potter’s stories is featured on each coin in the series.
Along with Peter Rabbit, the series also features Squirrel Nutkin, Benjamin Bunny, and Jemima Puddle-Duck. Each coin’s simple yet intricate design perfectly captures the essence of these characters. They are a pleasant reminder of the tales many of us heard as children.
Although the 50p Peter Rabbit coin is a staple in this series, its appeal has remained unchanged. These coins continue to be a sought-after addition to any coin collection, even though millions are in circulation.
