Isambard Kingdom Brunel

To commemorate the 200th anniversary of Brunel's birth (9 April 1806), the British Royal Mint has issued the Brunel Thimble Collection: six sterling silver thimbles featuring five of Brunel’s most famous achievements and Brunel himself. The set is £129.00 (US$240.00).
For those short of such pocket change, Cottage Thimbles has a four piece porcelain set available for £8.95 (US$16.00).
