Yeats on €10 coin

THE Central Bank has launched a €10 limited edition coin in honour of Irish artist Jack B Yeats.

The silver proof collector's coin features a portrait of Yeats overlooking a sketch of a horse and was designed by Michael Guilfoyle.

Catriona Yeats, grand-niece of the artist, said that the design was "impressive and striking" in its simplicity. The coins, which have an issue limit of 12,000 units, are available to the public at a cost of €46 and can be purchased directly from the Central Bank of Ireland on Dame Street, Dublin.
