Years of issue:
The Royal Mint is honouring Beatrix Potter with a series of 50p coins and this Squirrel Nutkin 50p is the fifth release. ‘The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin’ features the impertinent, yet loveable, red squirrel named Nutkin and his escape from an owl called Old Brown, whose character is featured on this 50p coin. Designed by Emma Noble, the loveable rogue squirrel features at the very heart of the coin – with his whiskers and once bushy tail captured in great detail.
