Mary Shelley's Frankenstein
Monday, 17 September 2018 | Gareth
Frankenstein continues to surprise, shock and inspire those who enjoy it. Its tradition is unrivalled; a lot of people called it the very first sci-fi book while others call it the greatest horror book ever produced. It is talked about as avidly as when it was very first released and continues to stimulate new conversations and imagination, 200 years on.
The coin has been developed by Royal Mint coin designer Thomas T. Docherty. Illustrating ECG screen styling of the phrasing of 'Frankenstein', the coin commemorates the tradition of Frankenstein and the significance of Mary Shelley's creation.
For 200 years, Frankenstein has caught our creativities. The story has been at the leading edge of disputes of extreme thinking, clinical developments and public understanding given that it was very first released in 1818, when Mary Shelley was 21 years of ages. She had actually composed the noval 3 years prior to its publication, when she was only 18.
