This brand new coin follows the design of the first definitive £2, the Technology £2. But eagle-eyed collectors will spot some very special features on this new issue…

25 years of our bi-metallic £2 celebrated with a new lenticular feature

In the centre of the original Technology £2, you’ll see the central lenticular area transform from four separate scrolls into eight intertwined scrolls, representing the Iron Age.

But, instead of eight scrolls, this re-issued bi-metallic £2 reveals the number ‘25’ when tilted – a clever way of celebrating the anniversary!

Last QEII Commemorative Bi-Metallic £2

The 25th anniversary of the £2 coin is confirmed to be the last UK commemorative bi-metallic £2 coin which features an effigy of Her Late Majesty.

This is sure to make this coin even more sought-after, as collectors rush to find the last UK coins with Queen Elizabeth II’s portrait on them.

Special dual-date

As well as the unique lenticular feature, this brand new £2 also features a special dual-date.

Featuring the original 1997 date on the reverse, and the 2022 date on the obverse, this coin becomes one of just a handful of UK coins to have a dual-date on its design.

Special Privy Mark

The obverse not only features Jody Clark’s QEII portrait, but also includes a special privy mark in the form of the central Iron Age circle.

The Discovery

In 1922, British Egyptologist Howard Carter dared to explore a neglected stairway within the Valley of the Kings. And, as the world would later learn, one of his biggest discoveries lay at the bottom. Can you just imagine the excitement Carter and his team felt at the time?

The burial chamber of Tutankhamun had been untouched for over 3000 years, until the door was opened in February 1923. Ever since this historic discovery, the world has been intrigued by artefacts found in the tomb.

So, I’m sure you’ll agree, it’s only fitting that this Egyptian discovery is marked on a UK £5 coin by The Royal Mint!
