This special edition 50p coin was issued in 2017 to celebrate one of Beatrix Potter’s much loved characters. ‘The Tale of Peter Rabbit’ was the first of Beatrix Potter’s tales and introduced the mischievous blue-coated bunny to the world. Generations of children have enjoyed Peter’s antics and the story of his escape from Mr McGregor’s vegetable garden.
Beatrix Potter lived from 1866 to 1943 and was the artist behind some of the best-loved characters in children’s literature.
