Beatrix Potter created "small books for small hands" that have been cherished for more than a century and are famous all over the world. In 2016, the Royal Mint celebrated this gifted woman with a series of coins struck for the 150th anniversary of her birth.
This release is a collection of all five of the Brilliant Uncirculated 50p coins from the Beatrix Potter 2016 series presented together within a specially designed case. This set includes the coin paying tribute to the author and illustrator herself, and four more coins featuring some of her best-loved characters: Peter Rabbit, Squirrel Nutkin, Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle and Jemima Puddle-Duck.
Each coin is housed in its own fold-out case, with facts about Beatrix and her little tales. The full set has been brought together in a collection box, decorated in the style of Beatrix’s own illustrations.
