2022 France 20€ Art of the Pen Shakespeare Silver Coin

Regular price $155.00 Sale

In 2021, Monnaie de Paris began a series paying tribute to the greats of literature. And for 2022, how does one celebrate the great, without also including the theatre, and William Shakespeare?

Born in England in 1564, Shakespeare's plays are still studied and performed today, almost 500 years later. Equally gifted in comedy and tragedy, he wrote no less than thirty-seven dramatic works, including the famous Romeo and Juliet and Hamlet. Clearly, William Shakespeare is a great in the halls of literature.

Impeccably minted, with great detail, relief, and typical French style, this 20€ silver coin features the Bard himself in split cameo with a character from his play, Hamlet - Yorick the dead court jester.
