Design details:

The honouring of Beatrix Potter with a series of 50p coins and this Jemima Puddle-Duck 50p is the third release. 'The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck’ features a domestic duck, named Jemima, whose character is featured on this 50p coin. Designed by Emma Noble, Jemima Puddle-Duck is instantly recognisable in the centre of the coin.

In this 1908 tale Jemima was a real duck belonging to Beatrix Potter. All Jemima wants to do is lay her eggs in peace. At last she flies off and finds the perfect place. Little does the silly duck realise that the charming gentleman who has lent her his woodshed is busily planning a delicious meal of . . . roast duck. 2017
