The first coin in the 2017 Beatrix Potter 50p coin series, the 2017 Peter Rabbit 50p depicts Peter Rabbit facing to the right and running in his favourite coat.
It has the words “The Tale of Peter Rabbit” around the coin edge.
With almost 20 million of these coins put into UK circulation, this coin is very commonly found on the Great British Coin Hunt. Coins in great condition can still fetch more than their face value.

Who is Peter Rabbit?
‘The Tale of Peter Rabbit’ was the first of Beatrix Potter’s little tales and introduced the mischievous blue-coated bunny to the world. Generations of children have enjoyed Peter’s antics and the story of his escape from Mr. McGregor’s vegetable garden.
For 2017 Emma Noble has captured one of the most iconic images of Peter, hopping away on one of his adventures. The coin has been finished to Brilliant Uncirculated standard – a finer finish than those you’ll find in circulation. The packaging that accompanies the coin is decorated in the style of Beatrix’s own watercolour illustrations and filled with more stories about this famous bunny.
