Sherlock Holmes 2019 UK 50p Brilliant Uncirculated Coin

Sherlock Holmes 50p

  • A perfect gift for fans of Sherlock Holmes and the work of Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle
  • Finished to Brilliant Uncirculated standard – a higher quality than other coins you’ll find in your pocket

Sherlock Holmes™ is a name synonymous with the crime fiction genre, as is his creator Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle. As a giant of crime fiction, Sherlock Holmes inspired a legacy of characters in fiction and Conan Doyle influenced generations of authors who still heed his work today.

2019 marks the 160th anniversary of Conan Doyle’s birth. A man of letters but also a man of medicine, Conan Doyle wrote 60 Sherlock Holmes stories, paving the way for the future of crime fiction. He also succeeded in the field of medicine, even volunteering as a medic in the Second Boer War in 1900.

Not just a reminder of the remarkable life of Conan Doyle, this coin is a celebration of one of the most famous detectives of all time.
