If you loved the limited edition Peter Rabbit (and other Beatrix Potter characters) coins back in 2016 and 2017, you're in for a treat. There are four new coins scheduled for release this year, including Peter Rabbit himself.

Peter Rabbit's coin is available first, and costs £60 from the Royal Mint. The others will be released gradually by the Royal Mint over 2018.

They were designed by Emma Noble, based on Beatrix Potter's original illustrations. Emma has previously worked on coins to commemorate the Queen's 60th coronation anniversary, Remembrance Sunday and King George I.

This is the third set of Beatrix Potter coins to be released. As well as these special silver proof coloured coins, there will also be plain-metal coins in circulation, so make sure to check your change carefully!
