Buy the 1998 Technology Silver Proof Piedfort Two Pound Coin
This is the second issue of the bimetallic £2 coin. This silver proof piedfort coin is double the thickness of the typical two pound coin. Struck in sterling silver, this is a collector's piece that is issued in a presentation box with a certificate.
In 1997, a bimetallic £2 coin was introduced. It was the first time that a bi-metallic coin was used for British coins. This silver proof piedfort coin is double the thickness and weight of the usual two pound coin and is the second year that this design was issued.
The edge is milled and incused with the inscription: STANDING ON THE SHOULDERS OF GIANTS
