As Britain prepared for war in 1914, Lord Kitchener's request for people to enlist drew an astonishing response. Families, neighbours and friends who enlisted together were able to fight side by side, in 'Pals Battalions'. They debuted this technique at the Battle of the Somme. The recruitment technique was successful, but the communities the Pals Battalions were recruited from were torn apart.
This coin pays tribute to the comradery and community within the army during World War I. The reverse shows three of the 'Pals' shown side by side. The design was based on the work of the First World War artist C.R.W. Nevinson. The actual design comes from a creative consultancy called Uniform, led by the Creative Director, Tim Sharp
The obverse features the fifth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, designed by Jody Clark. This is the first time the portrait has appeared on the £2 coins, having been unveiled in 2015.
The coin comes in a colourful presentation folder, with information about the army during World War I.

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.
