Isambard Kingdom Brunel is one of Britain’s greatest, best known, and most prolific engineers. From Clifton Suspension Bridge and Box Tunnel, to Paddington Station and the Royal Albert Bridge, there are monuments to his hard and meticulous work all over the south and south west of England. Clifton Suspension Bridge was his first independent, and perhaps most cherished work, although it was sadly not completed until after his death. Brunel also designed successful ships, including the SS Great Britain which was the first large ship built of iron. Notoriously passionate, enthusiastic, and willing to do manual labour alongside his team, Brunel was a great leader and inventor. To celebrate the 200th anniversary of his birth, The Royal Mint released a series of commemorative Two Pound coins, including this set of two Piedfort silver proofs. There was an issue limit of 5,000 in this joint presentation that comes with a booklet about Brunel’s life and work. The first coin, called ‘The Men’ was designed by Rod Kelly and features a portrait of the engineer with his iconic top hat and pipe, with segments of a wheel and bridge in the background. The rim features a stylish industrial design of a chain while around the edge is inscribed ‘1806 - 1859 ISAMBARD KINGDOM BRUNEL ENGINEER’. The second coin, called ‘His Achievements’ was designed by Robert Evans and features a section of the roof of Paddington Station. The station was inspired by Crystal Palace and the Great Exhibition, and features impressive arches and cast iron pillars. The edge inscription reads ‘SO MANY IRONS IN THE FIRE’. This pair of double thickness £2 coins come in their original packaging from The Royal Mint with a certificate of authenticity. They each weigh 24.00 grams and are struck in .925 sterling silver with a band of fine gold around the edge.
