2010 Florence Nightingale Two Pound Brilliant Uncirculated Coin In Folder


Buy a 2010 Florence Nightingale Two Pound Brilliant Uncirculated Coin In Folder

The mother of modern nursing, Florence Nightingale, is commemorated in this pre-owned BUnc Two Pound coin from the Royal Mint. 2010 marked the 100th anniversary of her death and she was nicknamed 'The Lady with the Lamp' as she tended to the wounded at night. Nightingale was born in Italy in 1820 and was named after the city of her birth - Florence. She had a strong devotion all her life to helping others after what she perceived was a calling from God in 1837, with her most famous nursing contribution made during the Crimean War. She had studied an innovative style of nursing in Germany shortly beforehand, which she took with her to the military hospitals. Through tireless campaigning and working, she improved conditions and supplies in the Scutari Hospital in Constantinople. Following this formative experience, she established her own training school for nurses at St Thomas' Hospital in London and in 1860 published her 'Notes on Nursing'. Profoundly influential, she was one of the first women to be awarded the Order of Merit, and also received the Royal Red Cross. On the coin's reverse, an outstretched hand is seen with another pair of hands checking the pulse, with rays of light emitted from the centre. It was designed by Gordon Summers. On the obverse, Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II is present. The crupro-nickel / nickel-brass £2 coin weighs 12.00 grams, has a diameter of 28.40 millimetres and is issued in the original limited edition packaging.
