400th Anniversary of The Life Of Shakespeare
Three £2 coins honour his best-known bodies of work – his histories, tragedies and comedies.
Such is William Shakespeare’s contribution to culture – not just in the United Kingdom but across the world – that no single coin could honour his genius. The Royal Mint has struck three coins which celebrate every aspect of the man and his timeless words. The coins have been endorsed by world-leading experts at the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust and are the only official UK coins to mark this anniversary.
