Charles Dickens is widely regarded as the greatest novelist and social critic of the Victorian era. He created some of today’s best-known ‘classic’ characters including Oliver Twist, Ebenezer Scrooge and Nicholas Nickleby, to name just a few.
And now, to mark 150 years since his passing, a brand new set of £2 coins has been issued for release by Jersey Treasury and fully authorised by Her Majesty the Queen.
The FIVE new British Isles coins, celebrate some of Dickens most famous works, of which a vast majority were based on events from his life. For example, after working in a blacking factory, both ‘David Copperfield’ and ‘Great Expectations’ were fictionalised.
Throughout his life, Dickens was a vocal critic against poverty and the Victorian social hierarchy. His novels gained unprecedented popularity during his lifetime, and by the 20th century, critics and scholars had recognised him as a literary genius.
