1999 Rugby World Cup Two Pound Gold Proof Coin

UK992GP 1999 Rugby World Cup Two Pound Gold Proof Coin Boxed
(VAT Exempt)
Only 311 issued! 1999 gold proof Rugby World Cup £2 coin in original case. The Royal Mint released this commemorative 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 around Britain. 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. Its the work of sculptor and medallist Ron Dutton. This edition is struck in 15.98 grams of 22 carat gold. The coin has a 28.40 millimetre diameter, comparable to circulating £2s. This piece was released the year after the first bimetallic Two Pound coins were issued and replicates the effect with the outer ring composed of red gold while the inner ring is a yellow toned gold. This attractive appearance is enhanced with the proof finish: the highest striking standard offered by The Royal Mint. The lustre and detail is preserved by the original case which has a numbered certificate of authenticity enclosed.
