The Flopsy Bunny 50p Coin – 2018 Colour Edition

In partnership with Royal Mint, the Tailor of Gloucester Silver Proofed 2018 coin pays homage to one of Beatrix Potter’s most beloved characters. 3,500 of the coins have been produced in conjunction with a succession of previous Beatrix Potter coins, all struck in sterling silver and finished to a Proofed standard. As part of the gift set, the number of the issued coin will appear on an official Royal Mint certificate to authenticate the coin issued.

Presented inside a secure case, the coin is housed inside in a special edition gift box with the Royal Mint crest. The face of the coin features the 2018 Tailor of Gloucester colour design. Though the story is titled The Tailor of Gloucester , the loyal little mice is the star of the coin. The charming pocketbook and coin are significant keepsakes to celebrate one of the most beloved, fictional characters in history, and it’s the perfect gift to preserve the memory of the great Beatrix Potter.
