2020 Agatha Christie 100 Years of Mystery £2 Gold Proof
Celebrate 100 years of Agatha Christie with this Two Pound gold proof coin featuring a mystery inspired reverse.
100 Years of Mystery
Remembered for her crime-solving characters, Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot, Agatha Christie is the bestselling author of all time. Her timeless detective stories have been published in over 50 languages, defining a genre and inspiring generations of writers.
Christie published more than 60 novels but it’s the hundredth anniversary of her first - The Mysterious Affair at Styles - that The Royal Mint celebrated in 2020 with their 100 Years of Mystery collection. It’s this novel, released in 1920, introduces the Queen of Crime’s beloved detective, Poirot.
Puzzle Piece Reverse
A memorable line, uttered by Poirot in Christie’s first book inspired the edge inscription on this £2 coin:
‘In the little grey cells of the brain lies the solution of every mystery’
The reverse, designed by David Lawrence, continues the theme. His work shows a selection of murder weapons, set against a puzzle design, the last piece just slotting into place. The author’s instantly recognisable signature appears at the base of the design.
Lawrence’s reverse is paired with Jody Clark’s portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.
