Name: Robert Burns 250th Anniversary Date of Issue: 22 January, 2009 Denominations:1st, 2nd, 1st, 50, 81, 1st
Robert Burns, one of the world's greatest poets, and Scotland's national bard, was born 250 years ago into a farming family at Alloway in Ayrshire in 1759.
The brilliance Burns displayed as a child did not reach a wider public until 1786, when at the age of 27, "Poems, Chiefly in the Scottish Dialect" was published. Considered to be one of the greatest poetical collections ever written, it gained appeal not solely with Edinburgh society, but also with those from the same tough background as himself.
