Great gift particularly for Atheists

I’ve had my share of athe­ists who have been hit­ting the blog lately due to my fol­low­ing of the rav­ing atheist’s con­ver­sion. (Thanks for com­ing and read­ing btw) If you are one of them this e-​mail I received should inter­est you.

The Royal Mint is com­ing out with a com­mem­o­ra­tive £2 of Charles Dar­win for his 200th birth­day. The link for the coin is here. The price is £7.78 or old style £7.15.3. (About $12 at today’s exchange rate).

From the Royal mint site:

This com­mem­o­ra­tive £2 coin for 2009 cel­e­brates the 200th anniver­sary of the birth of Charles Dar­win as well as the 150th anniver­sary of the pub­li­ca­tion of On the Ori­gin of Species. The reverse of the coin, designed by Suzie Zamit, fea­tures a pro­file por­trait of Charles Dar­win and a chim­panzee together with the denom­i­na­tion TWO POUNDS, the year dates 1809 and 2009 and DAR­WIN. The pre­sen­ta­tion folder tells the story of Charles Darwin’s life and achieve­ments and includes a repro­duc­tion of orig­i­nal draw­ings he made dur­ing his travels.

With a max run of 25,000 on the folder I’d order now. The Royal Mint makes pretty neat stuff and this coin cer­tainly qualifies.

It would seem to me to be the per­fect gift for Athe­ists in par­tic­u­lar but you don’t have to be an unbe­liever to appre­ci­ate Dar­win. His con­tri­bu­tions to sci­ence are con­sid­er­able and he cer­tainly rates the coin. It’s a nice coin i’d rec­om­mend it to any­one. It would make a par­tic­u­larly good gift for a sci­ence or biol­ogy teacher too.

I would sug­gest order­ing early how­ever in my expe­ri­ence the royal mint ends up back­o­rdered pretty fast. I’d rather have the coins in hand and sit on them for 12 months then order them in Novem­ber and get them in Feb.

I’ve had my share of atheists who have been hitting the blog lately due to my following of the raving atheist’s conversion. (Thanks for coming and reading btw) If you are one of them this e-mail I received should interest you.

The Royal Mint is coming out with a commemorative £2 of Charles Darwin for his 200th birthday. The link for the coin is here. The price is £7.78 or old style £7.15.3. (About $12 at today’s exchange rate).

From the Royal mint site:

This commemorative £2 coin for 2009 celebrates the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin as well as the 150th anniversary of the publication of On the Origin of Species. The reverse of the coin, designed by Suzie Zamit, features a profile portrait of Charles Darwin and a chimpanzee together with the denomination TWO POUNDS, the year dates 1809 and 2009 and DARWIN. The presentation folder tells the story of Charles Darwin’s life and achievements and includes a reproduction of original drawings he made during his travels.

With a max run of 25,000 on the folder I’d order now. The Royal Mint makes pretty neat stuff and this coin certainly qualifies.

It would seem to me to be the perfect gift for Atheists in particular but you don’t have to be an unbeliever to appreciate Darwin. His contributions to science are considerable and he certainly rates the coin. It’s a nice coin i’d recommend it to anyone. It would make a particularly good gift for a science or biology teacher too.

I would suggest ordering early however in my experience the royal mint ends up backordered pretty fast. I’d rather have the coins in hand and sit on them for 12 months then order them in November and get them in Feb.
