Celebrating Beatrix Potter and Her Tales




To celebrate the 150th anniversary of her birth, The Royal Mint is honoring Beatrix Potter with a series of 50p coins. The coin is designed by experienced Royal Mint engraver, Emma Noble, who captures the spirit of the multi-talented Beatrix Potter, with an inscription echoing the font we are so familiar with from her books. She has included elements celebrating Beatrix as the artist behind some of the most memorable characters in children’s literature.

Beatrix Potter was the creator of Peter Rabbit. Mrs. Potter was also a very accomplished scientific illustrator, focusing on mushrooms and plants but also on archaeological subject matter.
