Three coins celebrate his famous plays
Such is the literary legacy of William Shakespeare, that The Royal Mint has struck three official £2 coins in his honour – a first for the United Kingdom. Each coin celebrates an aspect of Shakespeare’s famous work, and the only way to own all three coins in one presentation is with this superb three-coin set. Your coins are struck to sparkling Brilliant Uncirculated standard and housed together in a display folder, complete with quotes from his plays to inspire and delight.
Honouring the works of William Shakespeare
Do you remember those English Literature lessons at school? The very first time you were handed a battered paperback, yours for a whole term, and became acquainted with one of our cultural greats, whose mastery of the language suddenly brought learning to life. The excitement and anticipation you felt as you turned each page, feeding your imagination and inspiring a lifelong love of reading and theatre that still gives so much pleasure today. Relive that simple joy as we honour the greatest writer of them all.
In the 400 years since his death, William Shakespeare is perhaps without peer. His influential works take their rightful place at the heart of our school curriculum and each new generation is gifted his legacy; ready to be inspired and entertained. Crisply minted to Brilliant Uncirculated standard, John Bergdahl’s designs grace each one of these coins, an homage to Shakespeare’s tragedies, comedies and historical works. This three-coin set is a thoughtful and original gift for any student. Inspire a lifelong love of the greatest dramatist who ever lived with a gift that can be treasured forever.
