UK’s first ever Peter Rabbit £5 coin coming soon!

“Peter Rabbit made his way back to his cosy burrow, where he lived with his family” – Beatrix Potter

Well, we’re certainly pleased to see Peter Rabbit return to the cosy burrow of UK coinage!

In 2020, it was confirmed that Peter Rabbit’s 50p tale had come to an end, with an incredible total of five 50ps celebrating the loveable character.

Collectors and Beatrix Potter fans alike have adored the Peter Rabbit coins released in recent years and now we are delighted to reveal that as of the Royal Proclamation on 12th March 2021, a brand new £5 coin is set to celebrate the cheeky character.

Whilst the complete design remains top secret, the coin is said to feature a depiction of Peter Rabbit, Mrs Rabbit, and three other rabbits. What’s more, the coin will feature the inscription, “NOW RUN ALONG, AND DON’T GET INTO MISCHIEF. I AM GOING OUT” – a quote from the famous tales.

If the Beatrix Potter 50p series is anything to go by, we’re sure this coin will be adorable! We can’t wait to see it.

    Looks brilliant. Bet its only buy it now. Not for general circulation. Change checker is no more. Bloody mad.

      Hi Sue,

      As this is a £5 coin, a denomination that is no longer in circulation, this will be a collector quality coin.

      We share your frustrations about less coins going into circulation, as Change Checker has no control over this. When the Treasury deems there is demand for new coins to enter circulation, The Royal Mint is tasked with producing them. We saw some great 50p coins enter circulation in 2020, so here’s hoping we see some brilliant coins enter circulation this year too.
