2016 Beatrix Potter 150th Anniversary Fifty Pence Silver Proof Coin

UK16BPSP 2016 Beatrix Potter 150th Anniversary 50p Silver Proof Reverse
The first Beatrix Potter 50p! 28 July 2016 marked the 150th anniversary of the birth of the children’s author and illustrator. While subsequent coins in The Royal Mint’s sought-after series feature beloved characters from Potter’s stories, this Fifty Pence piece is a tribute to their remarkable creator. She’s best known for her ‘Little Tales’ but Beatrix Potter was also a well respected mycologist, renown for her watercolours of fungi. The success of her books was partly down to a shrewd marketing strategy. She put the funds into land and property in the Lake District, the majority of which was gifted to the National Trust after her death in 1943. Emma Noble’s design for this 2016 pays tribute to Potter as an author, artist, scientist and conservationist. It features a silhouette portrait, curling vines and the instantly recognisable image of Peter Rabbit, her most famous creation. The lettering reads ‘BEATRIX POTTER 1866 1943’. On this collectible coin the ‘heads’ side features the fifth definitive coinage portrait of Her Majesty the Queen by Jody Clark. This edition is struck in 8.00 grams of .925 sterling silver. It’s finished to finest proof standard. Designed for collectors, proof coins boast a higher level of detail than their circulating counterparts. One of 7,471 issued by The Royal Mint, this Fifty Pence piece comes in it is original presentation box with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
