It is expected that by the end of 2017 The Royal Mint will have released a total of 9 Beatrix Potter 50p coins into general circulation. The 2016 set of 5 coins, Beatrix Potter Anniversary, Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddle-Duck, Squirrel Nutkin, Mrs Tiggy-Winkle have been followed in 2017 by a new Peter Rabbit design, Mr. Jeremy Fisher, Tom Kitten and finally Benjamin Bunny.

When a new coin is issued, people will speculate about whether the coin will be rare or become valuable in years to come. In reality most coins made for circulation could be worth a few times face value to collectors, but this depends on the number of each coin design produced. As an extreme example, if the Tom Kitten 50p had only 200,000 coins minted for circulation (less than the Kew Gardens 50p) - it would likely be very collectible and reach similar prices on eBay.
