Charles Dickens (1812-1870) is one of the greatest novelists of all time. Dickens created some of the most loved fictional characters ever. He was a superstar in his day, his work has never gone out of print and has spawned more than 200 movies. He's still famous today.

The reverse, designed by Matthew Dent, shows a profile outline of Charles Dickens, facing left, created from the titles of Dickens’ famous works. The inscription "1812 CHARLES DICKENS 1870" is to left.
