Relive the moment Frankenstein’s Monster came to life on a Silver 1oz Coin

200 years ago Mary Shelley brought one of the world’s most famous fictional characters to life.  Frankenstein’s Monster.

Now to mark the bi-centenary of the publication of Frankenstein you can relive the moment that pulsing electricity brings Dr Frankenstein’s creation to life with this extraordinary new legal tender coin.

The antique-finish fine silver coin is impressive in its own right.  Struck with extra high relief, the coin captures the finest details of Mary Shelley’s character, whilst specialist numismatic printing techniques highlight the true horror of Frankstein’s Monster. 

The moment the Monster comes to life

However, it’s only when you take your FREE UV light and shine it on your coin that you truly re-live the moment the Frankenstein’s Monster comes to life.

Suddenly the pulsing electricity is revealed, previously hidden in secret UV ink, whilst the change in colour serves to further highlight the tortured face of the Monster as Victor Frankenstein’s creation is realised.
