Description

First of all, if you wonder what BU means, it stands for Brilliant Uncirculated. A BU coin means it has never been in general circulation and consequently should be in mint condition. This experience sparked Potter’s lifelong interest in the natural world and formed the basis for her love of animals and the countryside that shone through her novels. Where can you buy the coin? In 2016, The Royal Mint released a collection of special 50p coins to mark 150 years since the birth of Beatrix Potter. The Royal Mint releases uncirculated versions of commemorative 50ps, and you can find the different versions of the Beatrix Potter 50p below: Version Despite this, the coin is still highly sought after for being one of the 13 Beatrix Potter 50ps, and if you can manage to complete the set then it will be much more valuable than having the coin on its own. Jeremy Fisher 50p Design

Helen Beatrix Potter was born on 28 July 1866 and was a writer, illustrator and conservationist. She was best known for writing children’s books which involved stories of woodland animals. In total, she wrote and illustrated 23 children’s tales. Her first story – The Tale of Peter Rabbit was actually first released in 1901, although only 250 copies were privately printed. It may be worth holding on to them as coins tend to become more valuable the older they are. However, it could be many years before they increase in worth significantly. How much are the Beatrix Potter coins if sold together? Inspired by Beatrix Potter’s classic tales that have enchanted readers of all generations for more than 100 years, this brand new release is set to be incredibly popular amongst Beatrix Potter fans and collectors alike. The Beatrix Potter portrait 50p coin pays tribute to the life of Beatrix Potter by featuring her portrait and elements from her work. The Beatrix Potter coin is the only coin in the series that does not directly feature a character from Potter’s tales.Beatrix Potter 50p coin releases included Silver Proof editions of Peter Rabbit, Flopsy Bunny, The Tailor of Gloucester and Mrs. Tittlemouse. The first Beatrix Potter 50p coins were released in 2016 to mark 150 years since the famous writer and illustrator's birth. This first issue consisted of the following coins: The 2017 Tom Kitten is the rarest Potter coin minted in that year, with 9.5 million produced. This puts it marginally ahead of the 2017 Jeremy Fisher 50p (9.9 million) but well in front of the far more common 2017 Tale of Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny 50p coins, with a mintage of 19.9 million and 25 million respectively. We’ll jump into how rare this makes the coin shortly, but let’s first take a look at the uncirculated versions of this coin that were released alongside the circulating issue. This coin was released to celebrate Beatrix Potter’s life, and the coin features the dates 1866 to 1943, with Peter Rabbit at the centre.

The series consists of 15 coins each featuring one of Potter’s delightful characters, and even a special coin which includes elements celebrating Beatrix as the artist behind some of the best-loved characters in children’s literature. Though she had no children of her own, Beatrix Potter brought animal characters to life and became well known as a famous writer of children’s books. Her books included an endearing character named Peter Rabbit and his friends and relatives from the animal world. With Peter Rabbit proving to be one of the UK’s most popular characters to ever feature on UK coins, this new release is set to prove incredibly sought-after amongst Beatrix Potter fans and collectors alike.The Beatrix Potter 50p coin, also known as the Beatrix Potter portrait 50p, is one of 13 coins dedicated to the works of Beatrix Potter – but how much is this coin worth today? Pay attention to listings that have an asking price of 1 penny as well, as these will charge excess in delivery to make up the cost (and profit!). Are there any error Tom Kitten 50p coins? The coin was designed to celebrate Beatrix Potter as the author and illustrator of her popular children’s books. In addition to the standard 50p designs, several reverse designs have been minted on the 50p coin to commemorate important events. The limited edition coins showed characters from the author’s iconic children’s story, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, with Peter Rabbit the most popular (and most valuable) coins in the series.

The Jeremy Fisher 50p – commonly referred to as the ‘Frog 50p’ – caused quite the stir when it was first released in 2017, but how much is the coin worth today? The design by Emma Noble has the text BEATRIX POTTER with her lifetime dates underneath from 1866 to 1943. The 2016 coins are the rarest out there, but there have since been additional releases in 2017 and 2018, with coins featuring Flopsy Bunny, Mrs Tittlemouse, The Tailor of Gloucester and a new Peter Rabbit design. Released in celebration of Beatrix Potter’s life, these anniversary coins features the dates 1866 to 1943, with Peter Rabbit pictured at the centre.Coin collectors may be eagerly hunting down the various designs from the collection, but some of the tender is more valuable than the rest. The first release of Beatrix Potter coins into UK coin circulation in 2016 started a frenzy of new coin collectors. How rare are the Beatrix Potter coins? The Tale of Mr Jeremy Fisher recounts the journey of the eponymous anthropomorphic frog, as he makes his way across a pond in search of fish to catch for his dinner.

And, where there are listings selling coins for a lot more, this is generally where someone is trying to make their sale look more attractive. (Perhaps using capital letters for VERY RARE to make it stand out). Her characters stemmed from her love for nature and got their start as she and her brother designed images to illustrate verses in A Happy Pair. After seeing how successful her drawings were, she decided to publish her own illustrations and stories.Compared to other commemorative coin collections, the mintage figures for Beatrix Potter coins are relatively low. This means that they are more likely to appreciate in value over time, mainly if they are in good condition and have yet to be widely distributed. Beatrix Potter 50p coins saw the release of Silver Proof editions for Peter Rabbit, Benjamin Bunny, Mr. Jeremy Fisher, and Tom Kitten. The image was designed by Emma Noble. Her initials are in lower case on the lower right of the coin’s reverse side. Due to their success, The Royal Mint released a further 4 50p coins and these were Peter Rabbit 50p, Tom Kitten 50p, Jeremy Fisher 50p, and Benjamin Bunny 50p. This increase in popularity had an effect on the mintage figures with Tom Kitten being the least at 9,500,000 and Benjamin Bunny having the most at a whopping 25,000,000.
