This new coin by the Republic of Cameroon has got the name of “Cervantes and Shakespeare” and astounds with intricate decorations. Four hundred years have elapsed since the death of two great men: England’s national poet and playwright William Shakespeare and the greatest writer in the Spanish language Miguel de Cervantes. The coin is struck from 17,5 g silver 999 in proof quality and comes housed in a specially designed presentation case. The worldwide mintage is limited to 999 pieces.

The coin’s obverse features the star-crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet, whereas its reverse depicts the ingenious gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha. In addition to this, both sides of the collectible are adorned with microprinted fragments of the most famous written works created by both authors. The portraits of both writers are coated with 24-carat gold.

Miguel de Cervantes passed away on 22 April 1616. His Don Quixote of La Mancha, the knight struggling with windmills, has taken root in the collective imagination of readers all over the world. Simultaneously, William Shakespeare, England’s national poet and playwright, passed away on 23 April 1616. His parade of colorful individuals is a timeless gallery of human characters.
