The first Beatrix Potter 50p in gold proof! 28 July 2016 marked the 150th anniversary of the birth of the children’s author and illustrator. While subsequent coins in The Royal Mint’s sought-after series feature beloved characters from Potter’s stories, this Fifty Pence piece is a tribute to their remarkable creator. She’s best known for her ‘Little Tales’ but Beatrix Potter was also a well respected mycologist, renown for her watercolours of fungi. The success of her books was partly down to a shrewd marketing strategy. She put the funds into land and property in the Lake District, the majority of which was gifted to the National Trust after her death in 1943. Emma Noble’s design for this 2016 pays tribute to Potter as an author, artist, scientist and conservationist. It features a silhouette portrait, curling vines and the instantly recognisable image of Peter Rabbit, her most famous creation. The lettering reads ‘BEATRIX POTTER 1866 1943’. On this collectible coin the ‘heads’ side features the fifth definitive coinage portrait of Her Majesty the Queen by Jody Clark. This edition is struck in 15.50 grams of 22 carat gold. It’s finished to proof standard. Designed for collectors, proof coins boast a higher level of detail than their circulating counterparts. One of just 750 issued by The Royal Mint, this Fifty Pence piece comes in it is original presentation box with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
