This coin commemorates the 150th anniversary of the birth of William Butler Yeats, the Irish poet and Nobel Laureate.

Yeats is widely considered to be one of the greatest poets of the twentieth century. He was one of the leading figures in the Irish Literary Revival and his writing was deeply influenced by Irish mythology and folklore.

The design, by Irish artist Mary Gregoriy, tries to make a visual poem with rhythm and beat. Not with words but with pictures. The design includes a representation of Yeats as he was seen in his younger years with his distinctive spectacles perched upon the bridge of his nose and facing towards the left.

The reverse includes the harp, insignia of the Irish Republic, along with the year of issue “2015” and text “EIRE” on either side of the harp.
