Jane Austen Portrait
Jane Austen Portrait

Jane Austen was an English Novelist born in 1775 and is best known for her novels which offer an insight into life during the late 1700s and early 1800s. Her novels were published anonymously, and though she received little publicity from them during her lifetime, 200 years after her death, she is considered one of the most important literary characters of that time.

Her stories of love and realism were unusual at the time, and are loved today as important pieces of literature. This £2 coin has been issued to celebrate her life and work.

The reverse design is a simple portrait of Jane Austen, contained within a locket, with her signature across the front. The lettering around the outside includes her name, the anniversary date and coin denomination. Jody Clark's obverse (5th portrait) design is used on the other side.
