Revealed: Four new Beatrix Potter 50p coins

There is no doubt that the 2016 Beatrix Potter caused a collecting storm across the UK with collectors checking their change in an attempt to find a complete set of Beatrix Potter 50p’s. In fact the series has been so popular, the coins have dominated the news ever since they were revealed by The Royal Mint last year.

And now, 2017 is set to be another exciting year for Change Checkers with the release of FOUR BRAND NEW Beatrix Potter 50p’s.

Just revealed…

There were rumours last year about whether more Beatrix Potter themed 50ps would be issued… and they were true! We can now reveal the brand new designs for 2017…

Peter Rabbit

The 2017 Peter Rabbit 50p

The ‘Tale of Peter Rabbit’ was the first in a series of 23 little tales by Beatrix Potter. The inquisitive bunny is the star of the little tales and pops up in many of the other stories.

This brand new 50p is available right now in superior brilliant uncirculated quality and features Peter Rabbit in his iconic blue jacket that became the emblem of Beatrix Potter’s work.

Mr. Jeremy Fisher

The 2017 Mr. Jeremy Fisher 50p

Like many of the characters from the little tales, Jeremy Fisher began life in a letter which Beatrix Potter wrote while holidaying on the River Tay in Scotland.

The 50p features Mr. Jeremy Fisher in his waterproof makintosh and galoshes and collector quality versions are due to be released on the 5th June.


Tom Kitten

The 2017 Tom Kitten 50p

Tom Kitten was first introduced in 1907 when the ‘The Tale of Tom Kitten’ was published. The naughty kitten appeals to children everywhere with his antics and is another favourite character from the series.

The collector version Tom Kitten 50p will be available from 31st July and features the original illustration of Tom Kitten from the front cover of Beatrix Potter’s book.


Benjamin Bunny

The 2017 Benjamin Bunny 50p

‘The tale of Benjamin Bunny’ published in 1904, was written from scratch by Beatrix Potter. She even borrowed a cat to create new sketches for the illustrated tale.

The 50p features Benjamin Bunny dressed in his little brown jacket and over-sized tam-o’-shanter, this coin will be available in September in superior brilliant uncirculated quality.

I’m sure you’ll agree, these four coins are the perfect continuation of the series, and really capture the nostalgic charm of Beatrix Potter’s original stories. Emma Noble has designed all four coins which have been issued to carry on the celebrations of some of Beatrix Potter’s most loved animals.

There is no date as of yet to when these 50p’s will be released into circulation but we’ll be sure to update you as soon as we can. The first series of 50p’s issued in 2016 proved to be extremely popular with collectors nationwide, so it is no doubt that the second series of 50p’s will be just as sought after.

Avoid the long wait to find the Peter Rabbit 50p coin in your change by securing the Brilliant Uncirculated issue today for just £3.99 (+p&p).

    I wonder when these will appear on your circulation information pages and on the swaps and coin info pages (the new Peter Rabbit is there although the image has disappeared)?

    I wonder when these new coins will show up under your information pages and in the Changechecker lists? So far only the new Peter Rabbit is shown, although the image has disappeared.
