More about the 2016 Peter Rabbit 50p

The 2016 Peter Rabbit 50p was issued as the first of a five coins series in 2016 to Celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the birth of Beatrix Potter.

  • The first official UK coin to celebrate Peter Rabbit
  • The second coin in the five coin Beatrix Potter set released in 2016
  • ‘The Tale of Peter Rabbit’ was the first of Beatrix Potter’s tales

When Peter Rabbit appeared in the first of Beatrix Potter’s little tales, the mischievous blue-coated bunny was destined to become a star, going on to appear throughout the coin series.

Other Peter Rabbit coins include:

The Royal Mint has said that the 2020 edition is the final Peter Rabbit UK coin to be released.

Peter Rabbit, the much-loved mischievous bunny

On the second 50p in this 2016 collectable series

‘The Tale of Peter Rabbit’ was the first of Beatrix Potter’s 23 little tales. This story of four little rabbits named Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail and Peter has since captured the imaginations of millions of children around the world, with Peter becoming the emblem of Beatrix Potter’s work. Generation after generation have enjoyed reading about the blue-coated bunny and his antics in Mr. McGregor’s vegetable garden. Now the mischievous character has been captured on a 50p coin, the first official United Kingdom coin to feature this family favourite and the second in the series celebrating the wonderful world of Miss Potter.

Royal Mint designer, Emma Noble, has put Peter at the very heart of the coin, instantly recognisable, with every whisker captured in fine detail by the coin’s Brilliant Uncirculated finish. Presented in packaging inspired by the illustrations created by Beatrix herself, this coin will stand alongside the rest of the series.

2016 Peter Rabbit 50p Half Whisker

Some eBay sellers are listing the 2016 Peter Rabbit 50p with half a whisker (on the left side of his face) as a very special error coin.

The Peter Rabbit 50p Half Whisker rarity is a false claim, since every 2016 Peter Rabbit coin has only half a whisker on the left side, 4th whisker down from the top.

We have seen the half-whisker eBay listings selling for crazy money.

We can only hope that this article stops more people paying too much for what is a common coin, with almost 10 million in circulation.

7 Whiskers 50p

There are new eBay listings claiming 2016 Peter Rabbit 50p coins with 7 whiskers to the right of his face, rather than the usual 6. We have yet to see one listed with a picture clear enough to see if this is real or another fake claim.

This coin was issued in 3 variations:

  • Circulated
