2017 Jane Austen Two Pound Gold Proof Coin

UK17JAGP 2017 Jane Austen £2 Gold Proof Boxed
from
£995.00
(VAT Exempt)
Gold proof Royal Mint Two Pound coin issued to mark 200 years since the death of English novelist, Jane Austen. This coin comes in its original packaging which comprises a printed card outer box and a glossy wood case, complete with information booklet and a numbered certificate of authenticity. It’s one of just 750 issued by the Mint in this gold proof presentation. The coin is struck in 15.97 grams of 22-carat (916.7) gold, the bimetallic appearance of a regular £2 coin emulated with a red gold outer ring and a yellow gold inner. The obverse of this piece features Jody Clark’s portrait of Her Majesty the Queen. This fifth definitive coin effigy was in use between 2015 and Elizabeth II’s passing in 2022. The reverse was created by Royal Mint designer Dominique Evans and centres on a framed silhouette of the author, apparently hanging in an elegant interior, decorated with striped paper. Jane Austen is known for her six major novels, including Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudce. Her works are set among the British landed gentry in the late 18th century, her observations laced with wit and irony. Two centuries on, Austen’s books are among the most beloved in the English canon and we can rely on the release of at least one new TV or film adaptions annually. A limited edition proof coin with enduring appeal for the literary numismatist in your life.
