  • A silver coin celebrates his histories
  • William Shakespeare is celebrated as one of the greatest writers the world has ever known, and it is fitting that three £2 coins mark the 400th anniversary of his death. They feature a series of designs by seasoned coinage artist, John Bergdahl, capturing Shakespeare’s most famous works. This handsome 925 sterling silver coin represents his histories, which inspire the accompanying booklet, created with the help of the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust.
  • About the coin
  • Shakespeare looked to the kings of England for inspiration for many of his plays – works of imagination, but they are seared into the national psyche, painting a picture often mistaken for fact. The real Richard III can never be reclaimed, such is the dramatic impact of Shakespeare's evil hunchback with a grudge against humanity; testament to the power of his writing and its place at the very heart of our culture.
  • In 2016 we reach a landmark moment in our cultural history, 400 years since the passing of William Shakespeare. Mark this occasion and celebrate his greatest historical works with this beautiful silver coin. Finished to our finest Proof standard, it is a tribute to perhaps the greatest writer who ever lived. John Bergdahl, who has worked with The Royal Mint on a host of historical projects, has designed a coin that recalls the high drama of each bloody downfall immortalised on stage. Presented in a sleek black case, this stunning coin makes a worthy addition to any coin collection, or a thoughtful and original gift to anyone celebrating a special year.
