Wow what a great and unique coin for the collection. Took a few months of deciding whether or not to buy it but once it turned up there was no doubt or regret about the decision. Although I haven't found anything with enough magnification to read the script yet...
Its a golden feather
The text is not so clear, maybe it's because of the quality of the microscope
Great coin! Huge and beautiful!
The only disadvantage is that the text on the nano-chip can not be read even with the attached microscope. :(
What can I say... it is magnificent... I found the designs arts and crafts of the coin are very unique. I do collect some coins like thermometer or some other materials inside the coin but this one... my opinion.... nothing compares with it.
The William Shakespeare Hamlet Nano Coin
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 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.
