One of the all-time greats of science fiction literature, HG Wells is responsible for classics like War of the Worlds, The Time Machine, and The Invisible Man, and many more. Cracking reads, all of them, HG Wells and his contemporaries (Jules Verne, for example!) favoured a style of writing that was equal parts prophetic and adventurous. In 2021, The Royal Mint honours this great author with this official UK legal tender collectable. Featuring perhaps his most iconic imagery - the alien "tripods' from War of the Worlds and, of course, the Invisible Man himself, each £2 bimetal coin is available in Brilliant Uncirculated quality and housed in informative mint packaging.
