This issue marks 200 years of the legacy of Frankenstein and the birth of science fiction.

For 200 years, Frankenstein has captured our imaginations. The story has been at the forefront of debates of radical thinking, scientific advancements and public perception since it was first published in 1818, when Mary Shelley was 21 years old. She had written the novel three years before its publication, when she was just 18.

Frankenstein continues to amaze, shock and inspire those who encounter it. Its legacy is unparalleled; many call it the first science fiction novel while others call it the greatest horror novel of all time. It is discussed as avidly as when it was first published and continues to spawn new discussions and creativity, 200 years on.

The innovative design by Royal Mint coin designer Thomas T. Docherty, shows the ECG monitor style wording of "Frankenstein." The coin also features the edge lettering "A SPARK OF BEING," which is a quote taken from the novel
