The Royal Mint has released several coins over the years featuring renowned British writers – including Jane Austen, Shakespeare and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, to name a few.
And now it’s been confirmed another great writer is joining this exclusive club – William Wordsworth. The poet has been selected to feature on a brand new UK £5 coin to mark the 250th anniversary of his birth.
Coins featuring British writers prove consistently popular with collectors, and we’re sure this is a coin many of you will want for your collection.
The coin features a design by David Lawrence that features lines from one of Wordsworth’s celebrated poems – Tintern Abbey – and takes inspiration from the landscape that inspired Wordsworth himself, the Lake District.
Expertly struck by The Royal Mint to a Brilliant Uncirculated finish, your coin is free from any blemishes or scratches that you would find on circulated coins in your change. Your coin will arrive in its official bespoke Royal Mint presentation pack, so you can keep it safe and in pristine condition for generations to come.
