It may shock fans to discover that Jane Austen was nearly totally unknown during her life time. Quickly after she passed away, in 1817, aged just 41, her works, consisting of Emma, Persuasion, as well as Pride and Prejudice, all went out of print. It was just when her nephew, James Edward Austen-Leigh, launched A Memoir of Jane Austen in 1870 that she was born once again to a broader Victorian public. Soon the cult of Austen fans, in some cases referred to as 'Janeites', was established and, given that then, The Jane Austen Society has actually developed branches around the world.

This ₤2 coin commemorating her life and works is readily available in fine silver, struck to Proof requirement, in a Limited Edition Presentation of 5,000 coins.
