1995 Dove £2 Piedfort Silver Proof

1995 Dove £2 Piedfort Silver Proof Reverse
£39.00
1995 marked 50 years since the end of the Second World War in Europe. Hostilities ceased in on 8 May 1945, better known as VE Day. It saw the formal surrender of Nazi Germany and the end of almost six years of devastating war. To commemorated the anniversary, The Royal Mint released this silver proof Two Pound coin with a dove on its reverse - a simple image but universally recognised as one of peace, optimism and calm. This elegant design is the work of John Mills. Accompanying the dove is a message of peace inscribed around the coin’s edge reading ‘1945 IN PEACE GOODWILL 1995’, which is a quote taken from Winston Churchill’s ‘History of the Second World War.’ It is joined on the obverse by Raphael Maklouf’s portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, which is the third official effigy used on modern British coinage. Struck in 31.96 grams of .925 Sterling Silver, from a mintage limit of 10,000 coins. Your double weight 1995 World War Two £2 coin comes in its original packaging from The Royal Mint with a certificate of authenticity.
