One of the most famous horror movie villains of all time - Count Dracula - appears here, on this official Ireland silver collector coin. In honouring the author of this most famous Gothic novel, Bram Stoker, the central bank of Ireland has created a highly appealing commemorative.
In the words of the designer, David Rooney, “The depiction of Dracula on the coin design echoes the early cinema depiction of Nosferatu and Hammer Horror cinema posters from the 1960's. I was eager to play with the scale of the figure looming behind the moonlit castle.”
Struck from an imperial ounce (28.28g) of sterling silver, each Bram Stoker coin is housed in a case with numbered certificate of authenticity.
