More about the Mr Jeremy Fisher 50p
This special edition 50p coin was issued in 2017 to celebrate one of Beatrix Potter’s much loved characters. The story of an eventful fishing trip that ends in Jeremy narrowly escaping being a trout’s dinner. ‘The Tale of Mr Jeremy Fisher’ gives us a wider glimpse into the charming world Beatrix Potter created, as we meet some interesting friends in the story including Mr Alderman Ptolemy Tortoise and Sir Isaac Newton.
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.
