UK 2021 Sir Walter Scott Silver Proof £2 Coin

Over the years various renowned British writers have been specially selected to feature on UK £2 coins, including Jane Austen, Shakespeare, and Agatha Christie.

And now another great writer is joining this exclusive club – one of the greatest Scots to have ever lived, Sir Walter Scott.

UK 2021 Sir Walter Scott £2 Silver Proof Coin

The Royal Mint has issued a BRAND NEW UK £2 Silver Proof coin to mark the 250th anniversary of his birth. It is expertly struck from .925 silver to a flawless proof finish.

As a child Scott developed a deep love of the Scottish landscape, poetry, and storytelling. Highly regarded as a significant influence on many 19th century writers, he is widely considered to be the pioneer of the historical novel.

JUST 1,771 issued worldwide – SELL-OUT expected

JUST 1,771 coins have been authorised in this limited edition presentation – NOT enough to meet demand.

£2 coins featuring British writers are consistently popular and result in quick sell-outs. Just look at the Agatha Christie £2 Silver Coin with an even HIGHER edition limit of 2,250 – it completely SOLD OUT within days of release!

There is clear demand for UK Silver £2 coins featuring British writers – we do not expect 1,771 Sir Walter Scott Silver £2 coins to last long.
