Coin collectors are franticly checking their pocket change in the hope that they will find Jemima Puddleduck.
Last year when the Beatrix Potter collection was launched the Royal Mint website crashed because everyone was keen to get their hands on the special editions.
Why? Well they made a lot fewer of them.
The story behind the new 50p designs
Royal Mint coin designer Emma Noble was chosen to immortalise Potter’s much-loved illustrations for the 2017 coin collection.
The designer has previously worked on coins commemorating the 60th anniversary of The Queen’s coronation, Remembrance Sunday, and King George I.
The 2017 collection, developed in collaboration with Penguin Random House (publisher of Beatrix Potter’s Tales) will kick off with a famously cheeky character from Potter’s books – Peter Rabbit himself.
Each coin’s obverse side bears the fifth definitive portrait of The Queen by Royal Mint Engraver Jody Clark, first introduced to UK coinage in 2015.
Brand manager for Peter Rabbit at Penguin Ventures Thomas Merrington said: “We are so delighted to be working once again with The Royal Mint on a new series of Beatrix Potter coins.
“The success of the original range is testament to the incredible craftsmanship and attention to detail that Emma Noble achieved in her designs and also to the love and affection shown towards Beatrix Potter’s characters by the general public,” Merrington added.
