  2. Richard Peckham on March 12, 2018 at 5:08 pm

    I’ve received the Peter Rabbit 2018, but when I ordered it, I was not offered the chance to order the other 3. Please can you put them on order for me please.



  3. J Pugh on March 1, 2018 at 11:45 am

    Are you doing a collectors folder as last year, We purchased a folder for 4 B but Peter Rabbit came in the folder?



  4. George Slade on February 21, 2018 at 11:45 am

    Have ordered the Peter Rabbit fifty pence coin but had no link to order the other three coins can someone please contact me on the phone number you hold on my account. The last time I ordered the 2017 coins I had to find a premium rate number to have it sorted out.

    • Luke Hearn on February 19, 2018 at 2:47 pm

      Hi Michelle, I can confirm that all the 2017 Beatrix Potter coins are in circulation, including Jeremy Fisher, however it seems as though they are taking a while to distribute widely. The mintage figures for these coins are high so it should only be a matter of time. Thanks Luke



  10. Des on February 19, 2018 at 1:28 pm

    I’ve pre-ordered mine and yeah they are bringing too many out at once hopefully will calm down soon haha, can’t keep up



  11. Rob on February 19, 2018 at 1:19 pm

    Awesome, can’t wait to see Jemima Puddleduck😃. Any idea when and if others characters will be released?



    • Luke Hearn on February 19, 2018 at 2:45 pm

      Hi Rob, Obviously Peter Rabbit is available from today but the other three coins will be released as follows:
      – Flopsy Bunny: March
      – The Tailor of Gloucester: April
      – Mrs Tittlemouse: May
      Thanks
      Luke



  12. James on February 19, 2018 at 11:02 am

    Amazing news 🙂
    When do the mintage figures normally get released?



    • Luke Hearn on February 19, 2018 at 12:15 pm

      Hi James, It’s usually a few months after the final coin has been released into circulation, although The Mint made the decision to release the mintages early last year. We will, of course, let you know as soon as anything is confirmed. Thanks Luke



  13. Wendy on February 19, 2018 at 10:12 am

    I would love the set



  14. Matthew on February 19, 2018 at 10:02 am

    Have you found out when Jeremy Fisher is going to be released into circulation?



    • Luke Hearn on February 19, 2018 at 12:13 pm
