The honouring of Beatrix Potter with a series of 50p coins and this
Squirrel Nutkin 50p is the fifth release. ‘The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin’
features the impertinent, yet loveable, red squirrel named Nutkin and his
escape from an owl called Old Brown, whose character is featured on this
50p coin. Designed by Emma Noble, the loveable rogue squirrel features at
the very heart of the coin – with his whiskers and once bushy tail
captured in great detail.
