Celebrate 100 years of mystery

Agatha Christie

Commemorating the centennial of Dame Agatha Christie’s first published novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, The Royal Mint is proud to celebrate 100 years of mystery with this wonderful special-edition £2 coin. Adorned with all the hallmarks of her novels, this beautiful coin features everything you would expect from an Agatha Christie story – including her favoured method of poisoning – all served on a bed of jigsaw pieces which are symbolic of the ingenious plot twists we’ve come to expect from a typical Christie narrative.

This coin is an official Agatha Christie product created in partnership with Agatha Christie Ltd and marks the very first time the Queen of Crime has been honoured on an official UK coin. Featuring the words ‘100 YEARS OF MYSTERY’, complete with her actual signature on the face and Poirot’s oft-quoted “LITTLE GREY CELLS” phrase inscribed on the edge, this commemorative £2 coin is the perfect way to celebrate a century of literary excellence.
