(VAT Exempt)
A gold Beatrix Potter 50 Pence piece, ready to gift with a special, clothbound edition of The Tale of Peter Rabbit. With the great popularity of Emma Noble’s first series of Beatrix Potter commemorative designs in 2016, another set of four Fifty Pence pieces were released by The Royal Mint in 2017. These celebrate four more of the author’s ‘Little Tales’ characters, including this gold proof coin which features a charming image of Peter Rabbit hopping away on adventures and getting into trouble with the legend ‘THE TALE OF PETER RABBIT’ around the edge. Originally written as illustrated story letters for the children of her friend, and former governess, Beatrix Potter’s stories were made all the more special by her watercolour illustrations and the immersive world she created. Peter Rabbit not only features in his own tales, but appeared in five other stories, such as The Tale of Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle, in his iconic blue jacket and often munching on a carrot. Beatrix Potter was inspired by her childhood with many pets and adventures of her own. She’s best known for her ‘Little Tales’ but was also a well respected mycologist, renown for her watercolours of fungi. She invested her funds into buying and conserving land and property in her beloved Lake District, the majority of which was gifted to the National Trust after her death in 1943. On the opposite side of this coin is Jody Clark’s 2015 portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This 50 pence coin comes in a smart acrylic display case with numbered certificate of authenticity. The coin itself is composed of 15.50 grams of 22-carat (91.67%) gold with a fine proof finish. It’s boxed with a special edition volume of Beatrix Potter’s most famous story. Just 450 of these limited edition gift sets were offered by The Royal Mint and this one is in pristine condition. An excellent christening or first birthday present.
