120 years of mischief celebrated on a brand-new coin
120 years ago, a book about a mischievous rabbit named Peter was first officially published by Frederick Warne & Co. This book would go on to be much-loved by children (and adults) all over the world…
Have you already guessed it’s title? It’s The Tale of Peter Rabbit, of course – Beatrix Potter’s delightful creation.
In 2016, the first Beatrix Potter™ coin was released, celebrating 150 years since her birth. It even featured Peter Rabbit™ mid-stroll on the reverse design.
This coin kickstarted a series of coin issues honouring Potter’s beloved work, including designs of characters such as: Jemima Puddle-Duck, Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle, Squirrel Nutkin, Tom Kitten, Jeremy Fisher, Benjamin Bunny and, of course, Peter Rabbit™!
In fact, there were a total of five 50ps dedicated to Peter, illustrating how truly adored he is to this day!
Brand new The Tale of Peter Rabbit™ Coin
The Royal Mint have JUST released a brand-new commemorative coin that celebrates the first official publication of The Tale of Peter Rabbit™ in 1922.

The Silver Colour Proof 1oz The Tale of Peter Rabbit™ coin shows Peter in his blue jacket, walking through an array of flowers and wildlife. This delightful design includes the words ‘120 years’ – the perfect tribute to the official publication date.
Usually only reserved for coins of a particular theme, we’ve seen strong sell outs in the past of the 1oz Silver Colour Proof. In fact, 2021’s Alice Through the Looking Glass 1oz Silver Colour Proof sold out completely – and that had the exact same edition limit as this new Peter Rabbit™ coin of 3,500.
Plus, Peter Rabbit™ is incredibly popular as a theme; every previously issued Peter Rabbit™ 50p coin has sold out, and many of them had edition limits as high as 35,000!
A sell-out is on the cards
In comparison, 3,500 is just a tiny number, and not going to be anywhere near enough for Peter Rabbit™ fans and collectors alike.
