ROBERT BURNS 1759 - 1796
One of Scotland's favourite sons, Robert Burns was a passionate poet and lyricist as well as a witty satirist of his religious and polital peers. His most famous work is perhaps "Auld Lang Syne", a song celebrating friendship and sung every year on New Years Eve in the English-speaking world.
Words taken from "Auld Lang Syne", exactly as written down by Burns "from an old man's singing", now provides an elegant reverse design for the £2 coin marking the 250th Anniversary of his birth.
