Why add this 2018 Silver Gilt Proof commemorating Jane Austen to your collection?

This 2017 proof is issued by The Royal Mint in honor of the 200th Anniversary of British novelist Jane Austin's untimely death. With imagery approved by Professor John Mullan, a leading Jane Austen academic, this coin represents the first circulating design of Royal Mint graphic designer Dominique Evans. This stunning 28.4 mm diameter coin is struck from 0.3569 Troy oz. of .925 fine silver with selective gilded accents and has a maximum mintage of 8,000.

Gorgeous Engraved Details

The reverse features a framed, textured silhouette of Jane Austen, behind Jane's signature. The image is surrounded by a gilded vertically striped Regency-era wallpaper design, with the inscriptions "JANE AUSTEN 1817-2017" and "TWO POUNDS."

The obverse features Royal Mint Coin Designer Jody Clark's crowned portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, framed by a gold plated border inscribed with "ELIZABETH II. DEI. GRA. REG. FID. DEF. 2017."

Ultra Cameo Proof 69 with Exclusive Big Ben Label

The designation of Ultra Cameo (UC) describes the high degree of visual contrast between the raised textured elements and the polished mirrored fields of the proof. Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) awarded this 2017 Great Britain An Enduring Romance with Jane Austen Silver Gilt Proof £2 Coin a grade of PF69. The virtually flawless proof is encapsulated in an NGC holder, including MCM's exclusive Big Ben themed certification label.
