The Charles Dickens £2 was issued in 2012 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Dickens’ birth, a famous English writer who wrote many books such as A Christmas Carol and Oliver Twist.

The design of the Charles Dickens £2 coin features a silhouette of Dickens which is created by titles of his famous book. Around the side there is an inscription ‘1812 Charles Dickens 1870’ which represents his life.

The fact that the coin has a mintage of over 8 million does mean that it is not particularly rare, but many people are fond of Dickens and his stories which means it can still sell for above face value to the right buyer.
