Beatrix Potter is most famous for writing and illustrating the 23 little tales that have enchanted readers for more than a century. She created a captivating world based in the British countryside, inhabited by characters whose adventures have been enjoyed by generations of children. 

In 2016 The Royal Mint celebrated Beatrix, and four characters from her little tales with a coin collection. It was clear from the public response that Beatrix and her stories were as popular as ever, inspiring us to celebrate four more characters in 2017. 

Now, for 2018, we continue the series with a new coin for Peter Rabbit, plus three more characters from the little tales: Flopsy Bunny, the Tailor of Gloucester and Mrs. Tittlemouse.
