Peter Rabbit is back on his third 50p coin! Struck by The Royal Mint, the reverse of the coin features a coloured image of Peter Rabbit. This adorable silver coin is part of The Royal Mint's Beatrix Potter Coin Series.
Struck from 0.925 sterling silver, the coin is struck with a proof finish and has a silver content of just over 0.24 troy ounces. Only 35,000 of these coins were issued.
The Beatrix Potter coins series is a favourite with coin collectors and it's clear to see why! Each coin comes beautifully displayed in a perspex display mount, housed inside a colourful presentation box, along with a numbered certificate of authenticity from The Royal Mint. These coins make ideal gifts for birthdays or Christenings.
After the success of the 2016 Beatrix Potter Fifty Pence Series, The Royal Mint have decided to continue the series with a third series in 2018 starting with The Tale of Peter Rabbit 50p coin. Designed by Emma Noble, this Peter Rabbit coin comes presented in a perspex block. It is issued with a certificate of authenticity.
To celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the Birth of Beatrix Potter in 2016, The Royal Mint released a series of fifty pence coins. The 2016 Peter Rabbit fifty pence was highly sought after by coin collectors and demand was high for the coin in all finishes; the coloured silver proof, the brilliant uncirculated and the circulation fifty pence, with collectors paying vast amounts to add the coins to their collections.
The obverse bears the fifth coinage portarit of Queen Elizabeth II. It was designed by the Royal Mint artist, Jody Clark.
The reverse was designed by artist, Emma Noble. It shows a coloured image of Peter Rabbit eating some carrots and radishes - no doubt from Mr Mcgregor’s garden! The text reads:
