“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.

50 Years of Fun
Charles Roger Hargreaves was an english author and illustrator, best known for his creation of the world-famous Mr. Men and Little Miss stories.
The Mr. Men and Little Miss books first originated with Mr Tickle. Hargreaves son asked him what a tickle looked like, so he drew a round orange man with long arms that could reach anywhere!
Mr Tickle was such a success with his son and the general public, that Hargreaves went on to create a whole world of Mr Men and Little Miss characters.
As of 2015, there have been 30 books, with over 85 Mr. Men and Little Miss characters featuring and now, they feature on a UK coin series for the very first time.
Following the popularity of previous children’s literature themed coins, we’re expecting these coins to be a huge hit with collectors!
Let’s take a closer look at previous UK coins that have celebrated children’s literature…
Beatrix Potter 50p Series
In 2016 a new series of 50p coins were confirmed celebrating renowned children’s author Beatrix Potter.
From Peter Rabbit, to the Tailor of Gloucester we’ve seen some of Potter’s most-loved characters feature on our 50p coin. These coins truly did spark a whole new interest in collecting, that spanned across generations.
In fact, these coins were so popular that we saw the main man himself, Peter Rabbit, feature in the series FIVE times – a testament to the nation’s love of this cheeky little bunny.
