Vote for Jane!


The Royal Mint is holding a vote to decide who is the next “Great Briton” to have his or her face commemorated on a coin. Jane Austen is one of the choices, so vote early and often! How hilariously and deliciously ironic is it to have Jane Austen, whose plots (and life) hinged so much on “pewter,” on a coin? C’mon, you only have till July 31, so go vote!

For those of you who are wavering between Jane and John Lennon, remember that John sent back his MBE so it’s doubtful he would have wanted to be on a coin. VOTE FOR JANE!
