About This Design
400 years since his death, William Shakespeare remains one of the greatest British writers of all time. His influential works take their rightful place at the heart of our school curriculum and each new generation is gifted his legacy; ready to be inspired and entertained. In 2016 The Royal Mint released three £2 coins marking the 400th anniversary of his death, designed by long-time Royal Mint collaborator John Bergdahl. The coins celebrate Shakespeare’s most famous works and this design skilfully weaves love around tragedy, with the skull and rose design capturing that sense of doomed romance.
