Beatrix Potter Coins
The popular series that celebrates the wonderful world of Miss Potter now continues with its final coin for 2016, which follows those struck for Beatrix herself and the iconic Peter Rabbit. This time The Royal Mint has chosen 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.
Collect all 4 characters: Peter Rabbit, Squirrel Nutkin, Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle, and Jemima Puddle-Duck.
