Peter Rabbit Returns for More Mischief on Delightful Silver proof

Every March for the past three years, Great Britain’s Royal Mint has rolled out a new set of coins that pay tribute to one of the world’s most famous rabbits, that vegetable-loving bunny himself, Peter Rabbit™. Beatrix Potter’s mischievous little bunny returns in 2019 with an all-new design on a special limited-edition proof that has been selectively colorized in a style reminiscent of Potter’s distinctive watercolor illustrations.

Struck in 8 grams of 92.5% British Sterling silver, this year’s release captures Peter in a moment of thought. He’s wearing his familiar blue coat and debating the merits of once again sneaking into Mr. McGregor’s garden. We all know he will, risking life and limb to barely escape, losing his clothes in the process. As a reminder to his folly, Mr. McGregor makes a scarecrow out of Peter’s fancy new clothes and he gets a stern scolding from his mother.

Each legal-tender 50-pence coin in this offer has been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in flawless Proof-70 Ultra Cameo  (PF70UC) condition, a distinction that means your perfectly-graded proof will have ZERO imperfections – showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended!
