Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein is a literary marvel, captivating readers with its chilling tale of science gone awry. Since it was published anonymously in 1818, Frankenstein’s monster still haunts the pages, terrifying and heartbreaking at the same time.

Contrary to conventional depictions, on our coin, the iconic monster reveals itself through individual letters. Readers with a razor-sharp vision, or with help of a magnifying glass, will discover the words written derive from the fateful scene where the monster draws its first breath.
