    Magnificent!!!

    This is the grandest gift, I believe, to have ever given someone. It is a gift that will leave the receiver in awe. The richly crafted, beautiful wooden box draws wonder as to what surprise it holds. Upon lifting the lid a coin like no other is revealed. The detailed artistry draws you to look closer; inspecting every image struck onto the front of the coin. Then you see it! A tiny white block at the bottom. Good thing this gift comes with a powerful 60x microscope. For when you turn the little light on and inspect the little white box, before your eyes is the entire play of "Hamlet."
    Okay, now you can breathe. I am 'over the moon' with coin. The only negative is that it is not mine to keep. I do know my daughter will cherish it forever.. then pass it down to her daughter. Thank you for a truly precious gift to give my much deserving daughter.

The William Shakespeare Hamlet Nano Coin

  • £195.00


Own Shakespeare's entire play on your very own coin...

2016 marks 400 years since the death of William Shakespeare - the greatest playwright in British history.  In recognition, a brand new coin featuring Hamlet - his most famous and most quoted play- has been issued.

Using cutting-edge Nano technology you can now own the entire play on this incredible new coin.

Nano technology

Nano coins contain a tiny Nano chip onto which is etched, in incredible detail, a massive amount of information. The William Shakespeare Hamlet Nano Coin features the entire script of Hamlet, and all in a space less than 8mm across. It truly is an amazing piece of numismatic technology.

A 60x microscope, supplied FREE, allows you to view it and see how incredibly detailed it is. Also the microscope has its own light source to enable you to see the script in minute detail.

A fitting way to preserve Shakespeare’s most famous play

The coin itself is an impressive 65mm in diameter and has been luxuriously plated in 24-carat gold. Not only that, it has also been expertly struck to a proof finish and etched with the opening lines to Shakespeare’s most famous soliloquy, ‘To be, or not to be’.

The play’s most iconic image - Yorrick’s skull held aloft - adorns the centre of the design, surrounding the Nano chip, in an intricate illumination style. It also carries the Ian Rank-Broadley portrait of the Queen’s head on the obverse.

This coin is the perfect way to honour the world’s greatest playwright and preserve his most famous play of all time. It is also the ideal heirloom to pass down to your children and grandchildren to ensure The Bard’s great works are never forgotten.

Strictly Limited Edition

Very few Nano coins have actually been released. However they have an incredible history of selling out, and with an edition limit of just 995 this one is set to follow suit. 

Shakespeare has a global significance, his works are studied, performed and admired around the world. As such, collectors from many different countries will be keen to add this to their collection, so make sure you act fast to reserve yours.
