Secure the NEW H.G. Wells UK £2 in Silver Proof Quality

Nicknamed ‘The Father of Science Fiction’ H.G. Wells is one of Britain’s most celebrated authors.

Now his life and legacy is honoured on a BRAND NEW UK £2 coin that’s been expertly struck from .925 Silver to a Proof finish by The Royal Mint. It’s also the most controversial coin design of the year…

The striking design hit the headlines earlier this year when eagle-eyed collectors picked up on the additional leg featured on the Martian from Wells’ famed novel The War of the Worlds that are famously known as tripods!

Collectors love an interesting story, so there is no doubt that this coin will be highly sought-after…

JUST 1,575 issued worldwide – SELL-OUT expected

Especially as JUST 1,575 coins have been authorised in this limited edition presentation – NOT enough to meet demand.

£2 coins featuring British writers are consistently popular and result in quick sell-outs. The Agatha Christie £2 Silver Coin had an even higher edition limit of 2,250 and completely sold out within days of release.

There is clear demand for UK Silver £2 coins featuring British writers – we do not expect 1,575 H.G. Wells Silver £2 coins to last long.
