Reverse of 2009 Robert Burns Silver Proof Two Pound Coin
According to The Royal Mint:
One of Scotland's favourite sons, Robert Burns is one of the great literary figures in British history. On the 250th anniversary of his birth, a £2 coin celebrates his life and work and is beautifully presented in a colourful presentation folder.
The coin has been struck to Brilliant Uncirculated quality, a standard far higher than those found in pockets and purses
The commemorative reverse features an extract from Auld Lang Syne, probably Burns' most famous work
As a legal tender coin of the UK, the obverse features the current portrait of Her Majesty The Queen by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS
Ideal to present as a gift.
Anyone with a passion for literature would be delighted to receive this coin - whether it be for a Christmas gift, a 'Hogmanay' gift or, perhaps most appropriately, as a special surprise for your guests at your Burns Night Supper!
In addition to the gold proof version offered here, the £2 is likely to be produced the following different versions, further details of which are shown here in due course.
Gold Proof Version
The gold proof versions will be produced in 22 carat red gold, with the centre "gold sprayed" according to the Royal Mint, before striking.

ELIZABETH II D G REG FID DEF
The reverse shows a simple but pleasing design.

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.
