Who is Mrs Tiggy Winkle?

The Mrs. Tiggy Winkle 50p coin was first issued in 2016 as part of the massively popular Beatrix Potter 50p coin collection.

Also known as the Hedgehog 50p, the Mrs. Tiggywinkle 50p is sought after by coin collectors of British coins, Beatrix Potter fans, and children around the world.

Beatrix Potter wrote her book The Tale of Mrs. Tiggly-Winkle in October 1905.

Mrs Tiggy-Winkle is a beautifully characterised hedgehog who lives as a washer-woman in a tiny cottage in the Lake District. A little girl named Lucie comes across the cottage and stays for tea.

The Mrs. Tiggle-Winky 50p is a very collectable coin to commemorate the work of Beatrix Potter and comes in general circulation coins worth a few pounds up to Silver Proof coins worth hundreds of pounds.

Beatrix Potter’s prickly character with a soft side

On the fourth 50p coin in the popular Beatrix Potter coins series

The fourth coin in the series that celebrates the wonderful world of Miss Potter features the conscientious hedgehog, Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle, dressed in gown and petticoats, a prickly washerwoman.

More than 100 years after her story was first published, she still captures the hearts of readers today.

Depicted on this 50p coin – the first official United Kingdom coin to feature Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle – the hedgehog is instantly recognisable, with every quill captured in fine detail in the coin’s Brilliant Uncirculated finish.

Series artist and Royal Mint engraver, Emma Noble has made sure that Beatrix’s characters are at the centre of each coin, achieving a delicate balance between character and inscription, their famous names clear for all to see.
