200th anniversary of the birth of Emily Brontė, I presume they meant...

Personally I think that in the context of the various literary figures already commemorated on the UK's coinage, all three Brontė sisters would be worthy of commemoration. But we have already passed the anniversary of Charlotte's birth (1816), so commemorating Emily would attract the question of why Charlotte was overlooked.

My bad, I have now amended the mistake.
