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.

The next instalment of the Winnie the Pooh 50p series has arrived, featuring the loveable donkey, Eeyore.
But, compared to the previous coins in the series, the Eeyore 50p has been given DRASTICALLY reduced edition limits.
Dramatic Edition Limit Cut
Previous silver coins in the series had edition limits of 18,000. Astonishingly, the Silver Proof Eeyore 50p has an edition limit of JUST 6,000. So thousands are set to miss out.
Plus, the Gold Proof Eeyore 50p edition limit has been cut EVEN lower – only 150 will be available. This is over 3 times as tiny as the edition limit of the Tigger Gold Proof!
Final two coins revealed
Whilst we can’t speculate on the edition limits of the final two Winnie the Pooh coins, we can reveal that Kanga and Roo, and Winnie the Pooh and Friends will appear on the final two coins. They will arrive in the Spring and Summer respectively.
When you add the Eeyore Silver Proof 50p to your collection, you will be given the option to join the priority list for the next two coins in the series.
Remember, thousands of collectors who purchased the other coins in the series are set to miss out, so it’s certainly looking like a sell out is on the way…

EXTREMELY LOW EDITION LIMIT
The East India Company are known for highly sought-after, exclusive coin releases so it’s no surprise this silver proof 50p issue will have an extremely low edition limit.
In fact, only 3,500 will be available worldwide for this new release. This tiny number will not be enough – the first ever Winnie the Pooh silver coin had an edition limit of FIVE TIMES that at 18,000 and is no longer available at The Royal Mint. Which means thousands are set to miss out.
The Hare and the Tortoise
The Hare and the Tortoise silver proof 50p will be the first in an exciting new collection, focusing on the fables told by Ancient Greek Storyteller, Aesop.
Despite this well-known fable, you’ll need to be quick to secure your own brand-new Hare and the Tortoise silver proof 50p.
The Goose that laid the Golden Egg
The East India Company have also treated collectors with a first look at the second 50p in the Aesop’s Fables series – The Goose that laid the Golden Egg. It’s also rumoured to have the same tiny edition limit as the first coin in the series, but it won’t be available until July.
