Magna Carta

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.

Quill Design Inaccuracy: Artistic License or Anachronism

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. Read our blog about it here.

Obverse Design

The obverse of the uncirculated coin features the Ian Rank-Broadley portrait of the Queen.

The proof version features the fifth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, by Jody Clark.

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.
