2017 Beatrix Potter Mr Jeremy Fisher Fifty Pence Silver Proof Coin

UK17JFSP 2017 Beatrix Potter Mr Jeremy Fisher 50p Silver Proof Reverse
In 2016, Emma Noble’s first set of four Beatrix Potter character Fifty Pence pieces proved very popular. The following year, 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’ illustrations, including this coloured, silver proof coin which features a recognisable image of Jeremy Fisher, digging for worms to take fishing, with the legend ‘MR JEREMY FISHER’. 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. 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 Jeremy Fisher in his recognisable red jacket, is Jody Clark’s 2015 portrait of The Queen; the fifth official effigy. This 50 pence coin comes in its original clear acrylic presentation case with numbered certificate of authenticity and additional information about the author and her work. It is one of 29,254 in this presentation, and struck in 8.00 grams of .925 sterling silver.
