I recommend you to the following excerpts from the text:
Quote:
The Royal Mint defended its design but did not specifically respond to the criticism, telling CNN: "The coin depicts the artist's interpretation of the various machines featured in War of the Worlds and the Invisible Man."

And Chris Costello, the coin's designer, insisted he was intentionally reinterpreting imagery from Wells' works for a modern audience.


In the former, it's the Royal Mint trying to cover it's Royal Ass by using the "artist's interpretation" as the catchall defense. It does help me better understand that "The Guardian" and 'BBC News" are, indeed, ingrained into the culture: if you don't like the facts, adjust them until you do.

As for the second paragraph in the quote - let's take the "artist's" point at face value:   he knows the modern audience . . . pathetic and ignorant thralls to Google on their hand-held devices.
