Beatrix Potter Collection

In 2016, The Royal Mint released a collection of special 50p coins to mark 150 years since the birth of Beatrix Potter.

The limited edition coins showed characters from the author’s iconic children’s story, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, with Peter Rabbit the most popular (and most valuable) coins in the series.

One of the Peter Rabbit coins recently sold for £1,000 on eBay, after five people bid for the rare 50p, while another sold for £840.

The 2016 coins are the rarest out there, but there have since been additional releases in 2017 and 2018, with coins featuring Flopsy Bunny, Mrs Tittlemouse, The Tailor of Gloucester and a new Peter Rabbit design.
