The Royal Mint pays tribute to one of Britain's greatest ever authors

This Royal Mint range of £2 coins mark the 200th anniversary of the death of one of the country's greatest ever authors. 

They are the first official UK coins to celebrate Jane Austen, and are available in Brilliant Uncirculated, Silver, Piedfort and Gold.


The £2 Coins' Regency Era Design

The design was inspired by a Jane Austen portrait currently housed in the National Gallery, and serves as a modern interpretation of silhouette portraits that were popular in the Regency era. 

The silhouette is framed and set against a striped background, evoking the fashionable wallpaper of a Georgian drawing room, immersing the viewer in the elegance and richness of the Regency era. 

Royal Mint graphic designer Dominique Evans designed the coin, which was approved by Austen academic Professor John Mullan.

Jane Austen

"The person, be it gentleman or lady,
who has not pleasure in a good novel
must be intolerably stupid,Jane Austen 

Criminally undervalued in her own time, in the intervening centuries since her death Jane Austen has become one of the most widely read and universally adored writers in the Western canon.

Nevertheless, her 6 books (Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion) are immeasurably influential. They rarely go out of print, consistently topping bestseller and favourite book lists, and have inspired numerous film and TV adaptations.

Translated into 40 languages and still widely read 200 years after her death, it seems no one is immune to the charms and enduring romance of Miss Austen.
