2023 J R R Tolkien Lord Of The Rings Two Pound Brilliant Uncirculated Coin In Folder

UK23JTBU 2023 J R R Tolkien Lord Of The Rings Two Pound Brilliant Uncirculated Coin In Folder
from
£12.00
Celebrate the life of JRR Tolkien, one of England's greatest novelists with this brilliant uncirculated Two Pound coin. John Ronald Reuel Tolkien - author of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings - was born in Bloemfontein, South Africa in 1892 and passed away in 1973. Fifty years on, the father of modern fantasy literature is joining a very small group of British authors to be celebrated on UK coinage with a £2 decorated with his distinctive monogram and lettering reading '1892 JRR TOLKIEN 1973 WRITER · POET · SCHOLAR'. This reverse engraving, by the noted Royal Mint designer David Lawrence, places Tolkein's fascinating monogram right in the centre. It's a combination of his initials: J, R, R and T and is surrounded by a mosaic pattern. The edge reads 'NOT ALL THOSE WHO WANDER ARE LOST', which is a line from The Riddle of Strider from The Fellowship of the Ring. Complementing this stunning design is the official UK coin portrait of HM King Charles III by Martin Jennings. These brand-new collectable 2023 coins boast an attractive BUnc finish which is protected by the capsule built into the colour-printed Royal Mint display folder. BU coins like these nickel-brass and cupronickel bimetallic £2s are struck twice for a superior appearance, especially when compared to the coins in your change.
