Royal Mint has announced that there are reportedly four new 50p coins to be released, and it will feature some of Beatrix Potter's favourite fictional characters. Just in time for the Peter Rabbit movie, huh?

According to BBC:

“Coloured collectable versions will be available to buy for either £10 or £60.

They will be added to the Beatrix Potter collection, launched in 2016 to commemorate 150 years since her birth.

The new designs will also include a helpful mouse from the story of the Tailor Of Gloucester.

The Peter Rabbit coin will go on sale today on the Royal Mint's website, while the other three designs will go on sale later this year.

The recreations are from hand-painted illustrations from Potter's books.”

The coins will include Peter Rabbit, Flopsy Bunny, Mrs Tittlemouse and a helpful mouse from the Tailor of Gloucester

Well…is it worth it?
