Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail would have approved!

Look through the bookshelf of many a small child and more often than not you will find a Beatrix Potter book entitled, ‘The Tale of Peter Rabbit.’ A family favourite detailing the adventures of a warren of rabbits appropriately called Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail. These tales have been immortalised in children’s minds, but now, thanks to the Royal Mint, they are now being immortalised in a series of 50p coins celebrating 150 years since the birth of this much loved author.

The world of Beatrix Potter was filled with a love of nature that was clear in her scientific studies, passion for conservation, and most famously in her little tales. These books, based on animal characters, have a charming quality that never dates. It is no wonder that they have been happily passed down through generations – small books for small hands, but all the more fun when read together with a loved one. To celebrate the 150th anniversary of her birth, The Royal Mint is honouring Beatrix with a series of 50p coins.

This series begins with a coin struck to remember Beatrix herself. Experienced Royal Mint engraver, Emma Noble, has included elements that celebrate her as the artist behind some of the best-loved characters in children’s literature. This Brilliant Uncirculated 50p coin comes in a fold-out wallet, decorated in the style of Beatrix’s own illustrations, which explores her life, her loves and her legacy. Beatrix Potter's Peter Rabbit will feature on a new coin issued in 2016.

The author's inclusion in the set comes as the Mint and the Bank of England are under pressure to depict more women on coins and bank notes. Another 50p coin features King Harold at the Battle of Hastings in 1066, 950 years ago.

£2 coins commemorate the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare's death in 1616, and the Great Fire of London 350 years ago. The Mint is also issuing a £2 coin marking the First World War, as part of a five-year programme for the war's centenary.

Director of commemorative coins, Anne Jessopp, said the coins will start being issued in the spring. She said: “It is always exciting to see the new years' designs revealed, commemorating the moments that matter, and revisiting some of the great events and stories from our history. The British public should start to see these coins appearing in their change from Spring 2016. This year is a special one for The Royal Mint too, with the opening of a Visitor Centre at its South Wales base for the first time in its 1,000 year history.”

Meanwhile, the Mint planned a new six-sided 60p coin for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee in 2012, but axed the move despite public enthusiasm after consulting Chancellor George Osborne, a Freedom of Information request revealed.

Beatrix Potter might be all about fiction, but when it comes to non-fiction events, the tales of how Hallmark Coins has sourced a wide array of brilliant and rare gold and silver coins and Sovereigns for their customers in the past and present has almost become as legendary as the folk tales of the aforementioned author.
