Buy the 2015 Magna Carta Silver Proof Two Pound Coin
Issued to commemorate the 800th Anniversary of the Magna Carta, this coin is a collector's piece that is issued in a presentation box with a certificate.
The Magna Carta, or "The Great Charter of the Liberties of England" is a charter sealed under oath by King John, and it represents the rights of the average man.
King John fought and lost many battles in France during his reign. The English people were increasingly taxed in order to fund the battles, leading to much anger and resentment. Fed up with how people were being exploited, barons took over London, forcing King John to negotiate.
The Magna Carta was drawn up to give the average person rights and take away power from the King. It meant that king John had to follow the laws of the land. No-one could be arrested or imprisoned, without being judged by their equals, and/or the law of the land.
It was sealed in June, 1215, and is still, to this day, regarded as one of the most important documents in history - representing a move towards freedom for the average man. It also inspired other important documents like the United States Constitution.

The proof version features the fifth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, by Jody Clark.
The reverse of the coin was designed by experienced coinage artist, John Bergdahl, who was inspired by the medieval art at the time. It shows King John in the centre, clutching the Magna Carta and a quill, suggesting that he has, or is about to, sign the document. The inaccuracy is that the Magna Carta was in fact sealed by the King, not signed.
