“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.

Since then, Peter Rabbit has featured in eight books, over 9 tv/film adaptations. and has been made into numerous commemorative souvenirs – including a series of 50p coins!

Following the buzz of the Beatrix Potter coins, we’ve made collecting the series a little easier by offering you the chance to add this fantastic Beatrix Potter coin to your collection with a fair and simple 50p for 50p swap!

The 2017 Jeremy Fisher 50p is the latest coin in the Beatrix Potter series to be released into circulation and, as you know, all too often the newest coins can often be the trickiest to get hold of…

But don’t despair, because we have managed to get our hands on 10,000 Jeremy Fisher 50p’s and we’re going to swap them ALL with Change Checkers.

As one of the most highly anticipated coin releases we’ve had, this swap is set to be one of busiest ever! So if you want to secure this coin, you’ll have to act fast!

 

 

Here’s how the swapping process works:

1) Choose THREE commemorative 50p coins that you would like to swap – these must be of a reasonable quality that you’d be happy to have in your collection
2) Complete our quick online form – we will email you a copy of this form to print out and send with your coins
3) Send us your completed form and 50p coin(s) (max. 3) in the post (remember to get proof of posting)
4) You’ll receive your 2017 Jeremy Fisher 50p(s) within 10 working days of posting your coins to us

It’s as easy as that!
