Just 200 issued! Celebrate 150 years of the FA Cup with this commemorative gold proof Two Pound coin. The Football Association Challenge Cup was first contested in the 1871-72 season with the trophy being taken home by Wanderers. The knockout competition - the oldest in the world - has been played by English clubs every year since, excepting suspensions during the First and Second World Wars. Now known as the Emirates FA Cup, the iconic trophy is being depicted on a coin for the first time to celebrate a remarkable anniversary. The design is the work of Matt Dent and Christian Davies and shows the trophy awarded in cup finals since 1911. The legend reads ‘CELEBRATING 150 YEARS OF THE FA CUP’. The obverse shows Jody Clark’s fifth official coinage portrait of Her Majesty the Queen. This edition is struck in 15.98 grams of 22 carat gold. The outer ring is a red gold which contrasts appealingly with the yellow gold inner circle. The coin is finished to The Royal Mint’s highest proof standard with multiple strikes of hand-prepared dies. The diameter is 28.40 millimetres and the edge bears the inscription ‘FOOTBALL'S GREATEST CUP COMPETITION’. You’ll receive your FA Cup £2 in its original packing from The Royal Mint with a numbered certificate of authenticity.
