A six-year gap where Britannia was absent on new UK circulating coins came to an end in 2015 when The Royal Mint placed the legendary British icon on the Two Pound coin. This pre-owned piece is the gold proof edition, struck to a high-quality proof standard in 15.98 grams of 22 carat gold. It’s exactly the same size as an ordinary £2, just consisting of gold alloy instead of cupronickel. From 1672, Britannia was an ever-present feature on circulating coins in Britain and her removal from the Ironside 50 Pence from 2009 onwards caused a public outcry. The Royal Mint eventually relented and returned her to circulation coinage, adapting the design seen on the 2015 proof Britannia collectable coins for this edition. Looking at the reverse, you’ll see a striking modern interpretation of Britannia, complete with Union Jack shield, trident and helmet. Sculptor Antony Dufort is responsible for this design, where he places Britannia facing to the left. The inscription on the edge reads ‘QUATUOR MARIA VINDICO’, which fittingly translates as ‘I claim the four seas’. On the obverse, the fifth official UK coin portrait of Queen Elizabeth II is visible, which was designed by Jody Clark. This is one of the first coins to have the fifth effigy of the Queen on it, enhancing its collectability. Further specifications are a diameter of 28.40 millimetres and an actual gold weight of 0.4708 troy ounces. As standard, you’ll receive your VAT-free coin in the original presentation box with certificate of authenticity. Only 500 pieces were authorised by the Mint in this limited edition presentation. Included in our price is free delivery to all UK addresses.
