Design details:


2012 was 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Dickens, one of our finest writers, with a unique £2 coin that incorporates the titles of Dickensí great works on its highly inventive reverse. The coin was designed by Matthew Dent, my interview with him can be found on the Check you Change Facebook group.
