More about the Tom Kitten 50p
This special edition 50p coin was issued in 2017 to celebrate one of Beatrix Potter’s much loved characters. ‘The Tale of Tom Kitten’ features Tom and his sisters, Moppet and Mittens, dressed in their finest clothes ready for a visit from their mother’s guests. After being sent to the garden to amuse themselves, the kittens fail dismally at keeping their clothes clean and tidy, eventually losing them to the passing Puddle-Ducks.
Beatrix Potter lived from 1866 to 1943 and was the artist behind some of the best-loved characters in children’s literature.
This is one of the four Beatrix Potter 50p coins released in 2017.
