Originally written in 1893, The Tale of Peter Rabbit is one of the best-selling books of all time. 123 years later, the Royal Mint is honoring what would be the 150th birthday of the book's author, Beatrix Potter, with a series of beautiful legal-tender coins - beginning with this 150th Anniversary of Beatrix Potter 2016 UK 50p BU Coin.

Presented in foldout packaging inspired by the illustrations in Miss Potter's many animal-centric tales, this Brilliant Uncirculated (BU)cupro-nickel coin is officially endorsed by Frederick Warne & Co., who first published The Tale of Peter Rabbit in a trade edition in 1902. It has since been translated into 36 languages and sold more than 45 million copies!

The impressive design by experienced Royal Mint engraver Emma Noble includes the name of silhouette of the author, the years of her birth and death, and an image of the famous jacketed rabbit framed by a beautiful floral border. Don't miss this chance to start your collection of the Beatrix Potter series of coins!
