Guardian: Yesterday in parliament
… Coins celebrating Henry VIII, Charles Darwin and Robert Burns will be issued in 2009, [UK Chancellor of the Exchequer, Alistair] Darling announced… A £2 coin will celebrate the 200th anniversary of Darwin's birth and the 150th anniversary of his work The Origin of Species.
In fact, it's a double celebration: not only is our Charlie to appear on a coin, but so is Robert Burns, the bard who wrote Charlie He's My Darling, upon which our theme tune is based.
A £2 coin, eh? That means there'll be five Darwins to a, erm, Darwin.
