2018 marked the 200th anniversary of the publication of Frankenstein. To celebrate this bicentenary year The Royal Mint have issued a new £2 coin commemorating this anniversary.
Written by Mary Shelley, ‘Frankenstein’ or ‘The Modern Prometheus’ is a horror that has captured our imaginations since its publication. Many consider it to be the best loved gothic novel of all time.
This Frankenstein £2 coin is struck from 925/1000 Sterling Silver with fine gold plate to a pristine Proof finish, the reverse was designed by Thomas Docherty and features the words ‘Frankenstein’ in an electric gothic font, with ‘Bicentenary of Mary Shelley’s The Modern Prometheus’ around the edge.
Extra-Special Limited edition Silver Piedfort Issue
However, this coin is “extra-special” because it is The Royal Mint’s flagship Silver Piedfort issue – they are double the normal thickness of a standard coin. It is a tradition that dates back centuries when such Piedfort pieces were struck exclusively for Royalty and dignitaries.
Twice the Silver. Less than HALF the edition.
Today Piedfort coins are still recognised as The Royal Mint’s most prestigious silver releases with a sell-out history to match. That’s because you don’t just own twice the silver but you also own a coin with LESS THAN HALF the edition limit of the standard Silver Proof Coin.
