The 2016 Peter Rabbit Silver Proof Coloured 50p Coin

29 February 2016 – the release date of the Peter Rabbit 50p – will go down in the record books as one of the most remarkable days in coin collecting history. 

Because in just a few days all 15,000 coloured Silver Proof Peter Rabbit 50ps had SOLD OUT – making it the fastest selling and most popular Silver UK 50p coin EVER.

And they could have sold more – thousands of collectors were left disappointed. Nowadays, on the rare occasion a coin comes up for sale, it will go for around £400 on Ebay. Not a bad return for a coin that originally cost £55!

WIN this Peter Rabbit Coloured Silver 50p!

    Hello. I have managed to get 2 2017 silver proof coloured peter rabbit coins. They are due to be delivered. I was wondering if you could by any chance do a swap ? I have 2 granddaughters and have the rest of the set in 2016 but not Peter rabbit ☹️ I would love to do a swap so I have a set of each for granddaughters.
