The Royal Mint issued a set of commemorative Two Pound coins in 2017 to mark 200 years since the death of famed English novelist, Jane Austen. As well as this brilliant uncirculated £2 coin, the author features on £10 banknotes issued by the Bank of England, replacing Charles Darwin. She is regarded as one of Britain's greatest writers, with most of her literary works set among the British landed gentry in the late 18th century. Some of her novels, including Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice, were initially published anonymously. Two centuries on, Austen's books are among the most beloved in the English canon, with her witty and ironic observations inspiring generation after generation of literacy enthusiasts. Dominique Evans is responsible for creating this coin's reverse, and it shows a framed silhouette of the author, apparently hanging in an elegant interior, decorated with striped paper. On the obverse is Jody Clark's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, which is the fifth and final definitive portrait of the monarch used on her official UK coinage. This cupronickel coin weighs 12.00 grams and features a bimetallic design, like the £2's you can find in your change. This pre-owned piece, offered in its original Royal Mint display packaging, is distinguished by a brilliant uncirculated finish, created for collectors.
