Celebrate the legend with these highly limited, historic coins!

Guy Fawkes stands as a legend in time for his central role in the plot to assassinate King James I of England. Known as the Gunpowder Plot of 1605, Fawkes and several other conspirators secretly created a store of gunpowder in the cellar of the Parliament House. They planned to blow up the King and many of his most influential nobles during a large meeting. The plan failed, however, when Fawkes was discovered with the gunpowder only hours before the King would be sitting directly above.

This plot has long been celebrated in England on the day the assassination was intended to occur; the 5th of November. Fireworks and a tradition of burning stuffed effigies of Guy Fawkes, clad with stylized masks depicting a jovial version of his face are key features in this annual event. In England, the 5th of November is known as Firework Night or Guy Fawkes Night.

This mask has been present for more than just celebration, however. Many will recognize it as the face of the hacker group known as ”Anonymous,” who have a performed a number of well-publicized attacks on government websites. With all of its history, it may come as a surprise that this mask was never featured on a coin — until now!
