The Public Libraries Act of 1850 was an Act of Parliament
which first gave local boroughs the power to establish free public libraries.

It was the first legal step towards the creation of universal access to
information and literature, and it is seen as a milestone in the social
education of the country. The coin features turning pages of a book along with the anniversary dates.


Please note this coin has been priced according to its scarcity and current market value.
