£450.00
Children’s author and illustrator, Beatrix Potter was born on 28 July 1866. One hundred and fifty years later, in celebration of her life and work, The Royal Mint released a series of four Fifty Pence pieces depicting four of her most popular characters: Mrs Tiggy-Winkle, Jemima Puddle-Duck, Squirrel Nutkin, and this endearing portrait of beloved trouble-maker Peter Rabbit. 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 Benjamin Bunny, where he and his cousin adventure back into Mr McGregor’s garden. 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 the coin to Peter Rabbit, is Jody Clark’s 2015 portrait of The Queen which is the fifth official effigy on modern coinage. This colourful silver 50 pence piece is one of 15,495 in this presentation. It weighs the standard 8.00 grams with a diameter of 27.30 millimetres. You will receive this popular collectors coin in its original packaging, with numbered certificate of authenticity.
