To commemorate Samuel Beckett (who was born 100 years ago) Ireland will not only issue a silver coin but also a gold piece. Both coins show Beckett and a scene from his most famous work "Waiting for Godot".

The other side of the coins shows the Irish harp, the country name in Irish (Eire), the year 2006 and the inscription "Samuel Beckett 1906-1989". The silver coin is part of the European Star series, see
