Celebrating the Characters of Beatrix Potter’s Little Tales
Beatrix Potter is most famous for writing and illustrating the 23 little tales that have enchanted readers for more than a century. She created a captivating world based in the British countryside, inhabited by characters whose adventures have been enjoyed by generations of children.
In 2016 The Royal Mint celebrated Beatrix and 4 characters from her little tales with a coin collection. It was clear from the public response that Beatrix and her stories were as popular as ever, inspiring the mint to celebrate 4 more characters in 2017.
Now, for 2018, The Royal Mint continues the series with new coins for Peter Rabbit and 3 more characters from the little tales: Flopsy Bunny, the Tailor of Gloucester and Mrs. Tittlemouse.
Each coin is struck in limited numbers and comes in 2 editions. The Brilliant Uncirculated versions are enclosed in a fold-out wallet. The silver Proof editions, which feature colour-printed elements, are presented in a clear acrylic case.
