Robert Burns was a Scottish poet and lyricist who is widely regarded as one of the great literary figures in British history. Burns night is celebrated each year with a traditional Haggis supper on his birthday, 25th January, and is more widely observed in Scotland than the official national day, St Andrew's Day. The reverse design of this £2 coin features an extract from Auld Lang Syne, Burns' most famous work.
