2005 St Paul's Cathedral End Of World War Two Two Pound Brilliant Uncirculated Coin In Folder

2005 St Paul's Cathedral End Of World War Two £2 Brilliant Uncirculated In Folder Packaging
from
£21.00
This Brilliant uncirculated 2005 Two Pound coin from The Royal Mint commemorates sixty years since the end of the Second World War. The War in Europe formally ended on 8 May 1945 while the war in the east was declared later the same year on 15 August. For this commemorative coin, Robert Elderton has designed an impactful reverse featuring St Paul's - an instantly recognisable symbol of London - illuminated by search lights. The cathedral survived the Blitz with only minor damage, doing much for morale in the capital. The search lights create a V shape which is synonymous with the end of the war, Victory, and Winston Churchill. This moving motif is joined on the obverse by the fourth effigy of Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley. The edge inscription reads 'IN VICTORY MAGNANIMITY IN PEACE GOODWILL' which is a quote taken from Winston Churchill's 'History of the Second World War'. The coin you will receive is from a limited mintage issue, struck in the same metal as the coins in your change but with a brilliant uncirculated finish, intended for collectors. The surface of this 2 Pound coin is preserved by the original presentation packaging which includes lots of additional information about the anniversary. Also included in the pack is a special medal designed by Jeffrey Matthews, featuring the official Ministry of Defence 60th Anniversary Logo on one side, and ten bells on the other side, ringing out in celebration of war's end.
