It might amaze fans to discover that Jane Austen was almost completely unknown throughout her life time. Soon after she passed away, in 1817, aged simply 41, her works, consisting of Emma, Persuasion, as well as Pride and Prejudice, all went out of print. It was only when her nephew, James Edward Austen-Leigh, released A Memoir of Jane Austen in 1870 that she was born once again to a broader Victorian public. Soon the cult of Austen fans, often known as 'Janeites', was established and, ever since, The Jane Austen Society has developed branches across the world.

This double-thickness Piedfort ₤2 coin is struck in fine silver to Proof standard in a Limited Edition Presentation of 2,500 coins.
