This year, for the first time ever, the Rugby World Cup will take place entirely in France. To celebrate the most prestigious rugby tournament in the world, Monnaie De Paris have commissioned the release of a BRAND NEW 2 Euro coin!
A winning design
The obverse design features a rugby player clutching the ball, sprinting across the globe under a starry sky. The official Rugby World Cup France 2023 logo also features on the coin. The reverse bears the 2 Euro denomination and the outline of the European continent.
Own a piece of the Rugby World Cup
Since the creation of the first tournament in 1987, the Rugby World Cup has served as the pinnacle of sporting excellence. As the most prestigious rugby competition in the world, to win this competition is considered the ultimate summit in rugby.
What’s more, the country that emerges triumphant not only earns the coveted title, but also etches its name in sporting history.
Therefore, it’s only fitting that a brand new 2 Euro coin is issued to pay tribute to this iconic and vastly historic sporting event.
We only have a small allocation available, so these coins won’t be around for long. Secure yours here today >>

Both new and seasoned Change Checkers will recognise the vast potential held within this coin.
The Olympic 50ps were issued in 2011 to commemorate the Olympic Games being held in London, with each 50p in the 29-coin series representing a different sport.
Still today, 12 years later, the Olympic 50ps rank as some of the most sought-after coins on our Scarcity Index.
We’ve previously seen coins issued to celebrate specific sports such as the 2022 UK FA Cup £2 for football and the 1999 UK Rugby World Cup £2 which was issued to commemorate the tournament being hosted by the UK – so it’s not the first time that the sport has been celebrated on a coin!
