With over 100 entries to choose from, our judges from The Museum of London and the Charles Dickens Museum had to work long into the night to pick out their favourites…but the decision has now been made.
So…to the results!
Runners up, who will each receive an uncirculated collector’s 2012 UK Charles Dickens £2 pack are:
Nell Darby @nelldarby tweeted her entry and used the thesaurus approach, listing words that capture the spirit of the novel rather than trying to describe it. We think it worked nicely!
@Royalmintuk Repression, dissatisfaction, drunkenness, recklessness, poverty, crime, grief, exile, remorse, and death. Bad luck. Hard Times.
Tarlok Meh posted on the blog to take second place with this effort that looks like a scientific formula! A definite favourite with The Museum of London’s judge!

And finally…the winner is…
Well done Grace, we thought your entry was simple and fun, but also went quite some way to capturing the transformative journey Scrooge is taken on in Dickens’ 1843 classic ‘A Christmas Carol’.
