The Royal Mint released this commemorative BUnc Two Pound to celebrate the fourth Rugby World Cup. Hosted primarily by Wales, the championship was the first held in the professional era of rugby union. The opening ceremony took place in Cardiff's new Millennium Stadium with other matches played in England, France, Ireland, and Scotland. The final was fought between Australia and France with the former winning 35-12. The design of this highly collectible coin shows the image of a stadium from above with the field forming a rugby ball. It is the work of sculptor and medallist Ron Dutton who wanted to capture the 'pulsating atmosphere' of a game. This Rugby coin is first commemorative bimetallic Two Pound issued by The Royal Mint and is a key acquisition for collectors of modern UK coinage. This edition is struck in the Mint's brilliant uncirculated standard which offers a coin with more detail that similar circulating editions. The fine finish is protected by the original card presentation folder which is decorated with lots of info about UK coins and the World Cup. A great gift for rugby fans.
