2015 Two Pound Coin - Definitive Britannia
The 2015 definitive 2 coin welcomes Britannia back onto UK coins. The iconic lady replaces the previous concentric 'gear' design as featured on the definitive 2 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.

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!

Royal Mint Prices
We have always thought the gold proof two pounds are too expensive for us to purchase them direct from The Royal Mint. We pride ourselves on being able to sell coins at very reasonable and competitive prices. For this reason we only purchase these coins from the secondary market in order to give reasonable prices on collectable coins to our customers.

Obverse
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.
The legend (inscription) reads:
ELIZABETH II D G REG FID DEF
2015

Reverse
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.
The legend (inscription) reads:
TWO POUNDS

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.
