Description of obverse and reverse The portrait of the Queen by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS features on the obverse of the coin. A remarkable and inventive reverse design has been specifically designed by Matthew Dent featuring a profile outline, immediately recognisable as Dickens. The portrait is composed of 30 titles, from his first work Sketches by Boz, to his last, The Mystery of Edwin Drood. Taken from Dickens’ own favourite story, David Copperfield, the words chosen for the edge inscription are those of the lovable and always optimistic Mr. Micawber: SOMETHING WILL TURN UP.
A brief annotation The Royal Mint striked of a £2 coin to commemorate and celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Dickens, one of Britain’s best-loved authors. This remarkable Victorian author is much loved by audiences around the world for his great contribution to classic English literature.
