The Tale of Peter Rabbit coin, not to be confused with the 2016 Peter Rabbit or 2018 Peter Rabbit 50p coins, was issued in 2017 and is one of the three 50p coins depicting an image of Peter Rabbit. The coin is part of the highly collectable Beatrix Potter 50p coins first issued in 2016 by the Royal Mint.

The coin features a design by Emma Noble of Peter Rabbit with the inscription ‘THE TALE OF PETER RABBIT’ around the edges, in tribute to the children’s book written by Beatrix Potter first published in 1902.

Despite such a large mintage figure this coin can still sell for well above face value on the secondary market.
