How much is the 2016 Peter Rabbit 50p worth?

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.

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 with coins released in 2017 and 2018.

Half Whisker 50p

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 rare coin.

The Half Whisker Peter Rabbit 50p 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.
