Earlier this year, the Royal Mint released a new series of Beatrix Potter 50ps following the success of the initial run, released in 2016 and again in 2017, to commemorate 150 years since the author’s birth, totaling 13 coins.
Collectable colour versions of the new designs are still available from the Royal Mint website, with special editions of the Beatrix Coins available from £10, for an uncirculated version of the standard coin – and £60 – £80 for a silver-proof coloured coin, and £1,000 for a gold one.
(The original Peter Rabbit Silver edition coins are now going for approximately £300+)
Older versions of the Beatrix Potter 50p coins are now fetching approximately £2-£3, with the lowest mintage and rarest, Jemima Puddleduck being £18.
There is also a Peter Rabbit 2016 50p coin in circulation which usually has 5 whiskers on one side of the face and 6 on the other, however there have been errors where an extra whisker has been found which make 7, and are now fetching £25 each.
These coins are all available from Scarborough Collectables while stocks last.
