Beatrix Potter 2016 Coin Collection, Brilliant Uncirculated 50p Five-Coin Set - UK16BPBS
Beatrix Potter created "books for small hands” that have been cherished for more than a century and are famous all over the world. In 2016, we celebrated this gifted woman with a series of coins struck for the 150th anniversary of her birth.
This Beatrix Potter Brilliant Uncirculated 50p Five-Coin Set brings together all five of the Brilliant Uncirculated 50p coins from the 2016 Beatrix Potter series. It is presented within a specially designed presentation box.
The coin set pays tribute to the author and illustrator on one coin and the other four coins feature some of her best loved characters; Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddle-Duck, Mrs. Tiggy Winkle and Squirrel Nutkin.
Each coin is housed in its own fold-out case with facts about the author and her little tales. The full set has been brought together in a collection box decorated in the style of Beatrix Potter’s own illustrations.
All of the five coins have been designed by Emma Noble, with the first coin capturing the spirit of the multi-talented Beatrix Potter, and it includes an inscription echoing the font that we are so familiar with from her books.
This beautifully created UK16BPBS coin box set would make for an amazing gift for not only for children but also those that have followed the author throughout their own childhood and into adulthood.
It is part of a range of Beatrix Potter memorabilia marking the 150th anniversary of her birth. Also included in this range to compliment these coins is the stunning Beatrix Potter Framed Special Stamps Set containing 6 special stamps and miniature sheet in a white wood effect frame.
