The £2 coin marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Dickens and boasts a remarkable and inventive reverse design by Matthew Dent.
A profile outline, immediately recognisable as Dickens has been painstakingly created from the titles of Dickens’ famous works. Tthe words chosen for the edge inscription are those of the lovable and always hopeful Mr Micawber: SOMETHING WILL TURN UP. The obverse features the familiar portrait of The Queen by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS.
