The 2015 definitive £2 coin welcomes Britannia back onto UK coins. The iconic lady replaces the previous concentric 'gear' design as featured on the coins since their introduction in 1997.

This is the third £2 coin released in 2015, the others being the commemorative coins for the 800th Anniversary of the Magna Carta £2 and The Royal Navy First World War £2.

We received our first delivery of coins on 26th March, 2015.

Over 2,000 Years of History

Britannia is a symbol of hope, unity and pride for Britain. She is often used as a figurehead of the values and achievements of the nation. She has been featured on coins dating all the way back to 119 AD when she appeared on coins of the Roman Emporer Hadrian.

Britannia featured on the reverse of 50p coins until a new design was brought in, in 2008.

She is often, but not always, shown with a lion at her feet. This represents the British Lion shown in the Royal Arms.

Silver Britannia Confusion

We imagine this coin will be easily confused with silver Britannia coins, as they also feature Britannia, and even more confusingly, have a face value of £2!

Design

The coin features a brand new portrait of Britannia on the reverse. It was designed by sculptor Antony Dofort and is meant to present Britannia in a modern era.

New Portrait

The obverse shows the new, fifth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, designed by Jody Clark. This is one of the first UK coins to feature the new design.

Edge Inscription

The edge writing reads "QUATUOR MARIA VINDICO", meaning "I will claim the four seas". This has been previously featured on coins bearing a Britannia 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.
