Coin Information:

In 1689, Prince William and Mary accepted the Declaration of Rights prior to being offered the throne, which effectively shifted the balance of power from the Crown to Parliament and changed the course of British political history. This £2 coin was issued in 1989 to commemorate the 300th anniversary of this landmark Act. There were 2 versions of the coin issued - English and Scottish. The Scottish reverse design features the Crown of Scotland and the inscription 'Tercentenary of the Claim of Right'
