Buy the 1986 Commonwealth Games £2 Ordinary Circulation Coin.
This is the first decimal two pound coin that was introduced in 1986. Issued to commemorate the Commonwealth Games.
We also have the gold proof version of the 1986 £2 coin for sale.
The decimal nickel-brass two pound coins which were produced by The Royal Mint from 1986 to 1996. They were modelled on the previous gold issues, having the same weight and diameter, although thicker. It is not uncommon for people to think they have found a gold coin in their coins, however, the true gold coin is struck in a proof finish and is a more coppery colour.
The entire series of seven different designs in five different years were all commemorative coins, produced largely to appeal to collectors. All are available in different version.
The obverse bears the third UK coin portrait of Queen Elizabeth II created by Ralph David Maklouf, FRSA. The coin bears the inscription:
ELIZABETH · II · DEI · GRATIA · REGINA · F·D · TWO POUNDS ·
The reverse design of a thistle encircled by a laurel wreath superimposed on the cross of Saint Andrew was created by Norman Sillman.
The design is in recognition of the thirteenth Commonwealth Games which were held in Scotland in that year. The 1986 £2 was the first British coin issued to commemorate a sporting event.
