Beatrix Potter Coins
First released by the Royal Mint in 2016, the popular series that celebrates the wonderful world of Miss Potter. This was the final coin for 2016, which followed those struck for Beatrix herself and the iconic Peter Rabbit. This time The Royal Mint chose the lovable rogue, Squirrel Nutkin. For over a century, the playful character has found a place in the hearts of so many, through the cautionary tale of how the impish squirrel drives Old Brown the owl to distraction – losing half his tail for his trouble.
Royal Mint engraver, Emma Noble, has put Squirrel Nutkin at the very heart of the coin, instantly recognisable, with his whiskers and once bushy tail captured in fine detail in the coin’s Brilliant Uncirculated finish. The coin will stand alongside the rest of the series, presented in packaging inspired by the illustrations created by Beatrix herself for the Peter Rabbit books.
