Design details:

The fourth coin in the third series of Beatrix Potter coins, sees the release of, Mrs Tittlemouse, the design shows her carrying a basket she uses to gather her dinner. The finest of details, like the mouse’s tiny whiskers and beady eye, have been captured on the coin’s small surface.

The 1910 tale about  Mrs Tittlemouse is a terribly tidy little wood mouse. She is always sweeping her burrow, polishing and tidying. It seems that no sooner has she started than another messy visitor appears to leave their muddy footprints everywhere. Beatrix made beautiful studies of insects, to produce delightful pictures of the spiders to bees, found in Mrs. Tittlemouse’s home.
