1999 Rugby World Cup Two Pound Holographic Piedfort Silver Proof Coin

1999 Rugby World Cup £2 Piedfort Silver Proof Boxed
The Royal Mint released this Two Pound piedfort silver proof coin to celebrate the fourth Rugby World Cup, held in 1999 and won by Australia. The celebratory coin was the first in the UK to feature a holographic design, in this case a rugby ball superimposed over a goal post. This hard-to-photograph motif was the work of medallist Ron Dutton and the effect really brings the atmosphere of a stadium to life. The edge inscription reads ‘RUGBY WORLD CUP 1999’. It is joined on the obverse by Queen Elizabeth II in Ian Rank-Broadley’s fourth definitive portrait. From a limited mintage of 10,000 coins, this double-weight piedfort edition is struck in 24.00 grams of .925 sterling silver and has a gold plated rim. You’ll receive your 1999 Rugby World Cup coin in its original box from The Royal Mint with a certificate of authenticity.
