1986 Commonwealth Games Edinburgh Two Pound Gold Proof Coin NGC Graded PF 70 Ultra Cameo

1986 Commonwealth Games Edinburgh Two Pound Gold Proof Coin NGC Graded PF 70 Ultra Cameo
(VAT Exempt)
The first commemorative UK Two Pound coin in 22-carat gold proof, graded a flawless PF 70 Ultra Cameo by NGC. The thirteenth Commonwealth Games opened in Edinburgh on 24 July 1986. The games were the second to be held in Edinburgh and welcomed 1,660 athletes from 27 different countries. This gold £2 coin is one of 3,277 issued by The Royal Mint to mark the occasion. At the time, UK Two Pounds were a purely commemorative, single metal coin, distinct from the later bimetallic circulation coins. The obverse of this piece shows the third definitive portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Raphael Maklouf. The reverse features a design by British sculptor Norman Sillman which includes a Scottish thistle overlaid on Saint Andrew's cross: both instantly recognisable symbols of Scotland. The edge inscription reads 'XIII COMMONWEALTH GAMES SCOTLAND'. A great addition to any collection of Scottish or sporting memorabilia, this coin is struck in 15.98 grams of 916.7 fine gold. The proof finish makes this simple, graphic design shine. Proof coins are struck multiple times with hand-prepared dies and this example is in pristine condition, protected by the Numismatic Guaranty Company holder.
