The third coin in the third series of Beatrix Potter coins, sees the release of, The Tailor of Gloucester, The coin features an iconic image from the book, the helpful little mouse sits crossed legged on a reel or skein of ‘twist’, complete with miniature spectacles and newspaper.

The 1903 tale tells the story of a poor tailor trying to survive in his freezing workshop over a hard winter. He has a terribly important commission to complete before Christmas Day, but is ill and tired. Luckily some very kind mice live in the dresser and set about helping the tailor with his work.
