from
£75.00
This 'The Tailor of Gloucester' special edition 50p Silver Proof coin is one of a set celebrating the 150th Anniversary of beloved children’s author, Beatrix Potter. The Royal Mint has immortalised protagonist Peter Rabbit and his animal friends, in coinage since 2016. This new release celebrates one of the author’s favourite works: The Tailor of Gloucester, first published in 1902. In this Little Tale, mice finish the work of a tailor in gratitude for being rescued from his cat. Potter studied real eighteenth century costume to depict the garments the mice stitch. The design for this coin features a glasses wearing mouse, perched on a cotton reel, studiously examining a newspaper. It’s inspired by the drawing that appears on the cover of the first edition of this popular story. Displayed on the reverse of this Fifty Pence piece, the design has been engraved by Royal Royal Mint creative Emma Noble, working from Beatrix Potter’s original illustrations. Around the mouse the text reads ‘THE TAILOR OF GLOUCESTER’. On this collectible coin the ‘heads’ side features the fifth definitive coinage portrait of Her Majesty the Queen by Jody Clark. This edition features colour printed details, exclusive to silver proof coins in this range. Proof finish coins are designed for collectors and offer a higher level of detail than their circulating counterparts. This Fifty Pence is struck in 8.00 grams of .925 sterling silver and comes in acrylic display casing, decorated with the author’s illustrations. Also included: the original box and certificate of authenticity from The Royal Mint.
