The Royal Mint in Rhondda Cynon Taff has announced new full-colour coins featuring Beatrix Potter characters to celebrate 150 years since her birth.

The Beatrix Potter range was announced at the beginning of 2016, and the Royal Mint in Llantrisant has now added four full-colour coins.

It said Peter Rabbit's "famous blue jacket" would be brought to life in detail.

Plain metal circulation versions will also appear later this year.
