About Shakespeare 450th Anniversary - Set Mint

William Shakespeare’s birth date is unknown though he was baptised on 26 April 1564 and died on 23 April 1616. Shakepeare was an English poet, playwright and actor, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world’s pre-eminent dramatist. He is often called England’s national poet and the “Bard of Avon”. His extant works, including some collaborations, consist of about 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and a few other verses, the authorship of some of which is uncertain. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.
