That is where we start, just at the begining. This year the Royal Mint are launching Peter Rabbit coins*.
The whole collection does come to quite a bit at checkout but getting the whole collection is truly magnific.
Four new 50p coins featuring some of Beatrix Potter’s favourite fictional characters are to be released, the Royal Mint has announced.
Peter Rabbit*, Mrs Tittlemouse and Flopsy Bunny will feature on the coins, which will enter general circulation for a limited time later this year.
Coloured collectable versions will be available to buy for either £10 or £60.
They will be added to the Beatrix Potter collection, launched in 2016 to commemorate 150 years since her birth.
The new designs will also include a helpful mouse from the story of the Tailor Of Gloucester.
The Peter Rabbit coin will is on sale today on the Royal Mint’s website, while the other three designs will go on sale later this year.
