2006 Two Pounds Coin - Isambard Kingdom Brunel
There are 2 different two pound coins for 2006 to commemorate the two hundredth anniversary of the birth of Brunel.

Since 1986. the Royal Mint has issued two pound coins, often with special commemorative themes. For 2006, there will be tw different designs based on the bicentenary of the birth of Isambard Kingdom Brunel. There may also be a "definitive" version in addition.
One features a magnificent view of Paddington Railway Station, one of Brunel's most famous works, while the other has a portrait of the man himself wearing his top hat.

Struck in both yellow and red 22 carat gold, the coin comes in a handsome presentation case of green leather with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity guaranteeing its provenance. We are waiting to hear the issue limits.

If you want to find the value of a coin you own, please take a look at our page I've Found An Old Coin, What's It Worth?

Please, if you are going to ask us whether the £2 coin you own is worth more than £2, please, please, please read our other pages about them first, and even then the answer is almost certainly no. About 1,000 people every week read one or more of our pages about £2 coins. Hopefully most manage to find what they wanted. A tiny percentage, but still about 20 per week ask us whether a £2 they have found in change / in a drawer / been given is worth more than £2. The answer to 99% of these questions is already on our site. We do not have the time or patience to answer such questions individually.
