The Darwin coin

To celebrate Charles Darwin's 200th birthday (today) and the 150th anniversary of the publication of On the Origin of Species, The Royal Mint issued a special Charles Darwin £2 Coin, although I am yet to see it in my change. (I am not talking here about £2 Silver Proof Coin or £2 Gold Proof Coin, which probably never will be in circulation.)
