This issue honors the 350th anniversary of the birth of satirist and poet Jonathan Swift (1667–1745), whose wit and outlook on life in Ireland during his lifetime is remembered from his many works and essays.

He is best remembered as the author of Gulliver’s Travels, an adventure story involving several voyages of Lemuel Gulliver, which was first published in 1726. Swift is also widely remembered as having authored “A Modest Proposal,” a satirical commentary which focused on the conditions of poor children in early 18th century Ireland. Swift was appointed to the deanery of St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Dublin in 1713, a position he held until his death in 1745.

The reverse depicts the legs and shoes of Gulliver standing on an opened book, "Gulliver’s Travels". The obverse shows the national symbol of Ireland, the harp.
