2016 Great Britain 50 Pence Silver Jemima Puddle-Duck Proof
Jemima Puddle-Duck Has Found the Perfect Place to Roost -- Your Collection!
A "Quacking" Good Tale!
Poor Jemima -- all she wants to do is hatch her own eggs, but the farmer's wife keeps taking them from her nest! Desperate to raise her own ducklings, she sets out to find a nest outside the farm. On her travels, she happens upon a stranger that has his own summer place nearby. Jemima doesn't notice that this "stranger" has a bushy tail, pointy ears and a whiskered face -- as well as a comfortable room filled with fowl feathers! Jemima seems to have found a wonderful nesting place, but after being asked to make a quick run to gather ingredients for omelets (definitely not stuffing), her behavior signals the attention of Kep the Collie. Can Kep and his fox-hound friends save Jemima before she becomes dinner? You'll have to read the story to find out!
