The Royal MintThe Royal Mint pays tribute to Jane Austen

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

These are the first official UK coins to celebrate Jane Austen, and are available in Brilliant Uncirculated, silver and silver Piedfort.


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.
