£75.00
Limited edition silver proof Peter Rabbit Fifty Pence for 2018. The Royal Mint has immortalised protagonist Peter Rabbit and his animal friends, on coinage since 2016: the 150th anniversary of the birth of Beatrix Potter. Born in 1866, Potter was a illustrator, author and conservationist, known for her Little Tales. Her interest in animals and handmade letters she created for her former governess’ children, paved the way for her first book: The Tale of Peter Rabbit, published in 1902. It’s the eponymous Peter - Potter’s most famous creation - that stars on this 2018 Fifty Pence. The Tale of Peter Rabbit tells the story of the naughty bunny who evades the clutches of Mr McGregor after helping himself to some of the gardeners vegetables. He’s shown here munching on some carrots, a radish at his feet, in a design taken from Beatrix Potter’s original illustrations. The engraving is the work of Royal Mint designer Emma Noble. Around this design are the words ‘PETER RABBIT’. It’s an instantly recognisable image and one sure to be enjoyed by nostalgic adults and small fans of the timeless classics. The other side of this coin features Jody Clark’s portrait of Her Majesty the Queen, in use on British coins since 2015. This edition is struck in 8.00 grams of .925 sterling silver. It’s finished to finest proof standard with colour printed details, bringing out the detail of the original illustrations. It comes in a printed acrylic display case which protects the coin from little fingers. Also included: the original box and a certificate of authenticity from The Royal Mint.
