2010 Two Pounds Coin - Florence Nightingale
There will be a two pound coin for 2010 to commemorate Florence Nightingale.
Widely considered to be the founder of modern Nursing, Florence Nightingale embarked upon a career that was in her time widely considered to be a menial and low-status occupation. Her experiences nursing sick and wounded British soldiers during the Crimean War in the 1850s convinced her that good nutrition, a clean and sanitary environment and adequate staffing levels were absolutely crucial in reducing the incidence of disease and secondary infection and thus, the death rate in hospitals. Her book "Notes on Nursing" proved to be influential in changing both the way hospitals were run and the role of nurses within them. International Nurses day is celebrated on the 12th of May, Nightingale's Birthday.

  • Ordinary circulation version, which should be available from banks and post offices during the year.
  • Specimen version, issued in Royal Mint folder. This has a superior finish compared with the ordinary coins, so will be preferred by most collectors. the folders are also very attractive and informative, and make interesting and unusual gifts.
  • Silver Proof version, with the outer part gold plated.
  • Piedfort proof version, similar but made double weight, with a lower mintage.

    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.
