The 2018 50p coin is the third UK coin to feature the much-loved children’s character Peter Rabbit. It was issued to carry on the celebrations of one of Beatrix Potter's famous animals and the first of Beatrix Potter's 23 children's tales, 'The tale of Peter Rabbit'. Struck by The Royal Mint, this is the first coin in the third series of Beatrix Potter 50ps which proved to be extremely popular with coin collectors in 2016 and 2017. Designed by Emma Noble, the reverse features Peter Rabbit munching on radishes.
