PETER RABBIT™ ON A BRAND-NEW COIN AT THE ROYAL MINT

29 Apr - 2021

The Royal Mint has embarked on a brand-new adventure with Penguin Random House as Peter Rabbit moves to a new coin – the £5 crown.

The Royal Mint, the Original Maker of UK coins, has announced that Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit™ will appear on their commemorative £5 crown and one-ounce coins for the very first time in a partnership secured with Penguin Random House.

Previously, Peter Rabbit and his friends have appeared on the 50p and have been one of the most popular commemorative coin collections from The Royal Mint. Now, the iconic character has hopped over to a new coin on the reverse of the £5 crown as well as silver and gold one ounce coins.

The larger surface area of the £5 crown has allowed The Royal Mint to explore the timeless narrative of The Tale of Peter Rabbit and capture more detail.

The Royal Mint’s own Ffion Gwillim created the design using original storybook illustrations, settling on an image showing the whole Rabbit family together. 

 The new commemorative coin features a charming scene of the Rabbit family from an early part of the story when Peter’s mother warns him not to get into any mischief. Capturing the warmth and charm of the original illustration, the coin is set to be key piece for collectors.

For fans of the Peter Rabbit commemorative coins, the 2021 coin design will no doubt be a popular addition to collections, marking a new chapter for the loveable rabbit. This will be the only release featuring Peter Rabbit this year.

The coin will not be going into general circulation.
