Mr. Yeats and the Beastly Coins

Mr. Yeats and the Beastly Coins

Ten years after the Easter Rising, in 1926, the Free State government decided to create a new coinage for the new state. They invited the most famous poet in the world, W.B. Yeats, to chair the design committee. Behind-the-scenes battles were fought before the new coins became one of the most enduring success stories of the new Irish state.
