For King George IV in 1823, a gold two pound coin was issued in sufficient quantities for circulation as for sale here, as well as a rare proof version.
For a brief history of British gold double sovereigns, and other two pound gold coins, please refer to our Two Pounds Information page.
Only in 1823, 1887, 1893, and 1902 were ordinary circulation types issued in addition to proof versions.
The 1823 two pound piece is the only gold two pounds with George IV on the obverse.
Edge engraved in raised letters, DECUS ET TUTAMEN. ANNO REGNI IV
