Description

The First Chance to Celebrate Samuel Pepys on a UK Coin

Samuel Pepys’ diary is a delightfully revealing historical document. From the first page Pepys’ writing draws us into scenes of life at the time of the Restoration. His first-hand reports of great events such as the coronation of Charles II and the horrors of the Great Fire of London and the Great Plague appear with observations on his business, leisure and home life. On every page and in every detail, Pepys’ passion for life comes through.

Pepys brought his diary to a close on 31 May 1669, fearing he was losing his sight. To mark the 350th anniversary of Samuel Pepys’ last diary entry, we have struck a Brilliant Uncirculated £2 coin celebrating this moment.
