Two Pounds (Nickel-Brass), Coin Type from United Kingdom - detailed information

Two Pounds (Nickel-Brass), Coin Type from United Kingdom (issued 1986 - 1996)
Coin TypeTwo Pounds (Nickel-Brass)

Prior to the introduction of the bi-metallic £2 into general circulation the Royal Mint issued a number of nickel-brass, commemorative £2 coins.

The commemorative £2 coins were issued to mark special occasions rather than for use in general circulation. They are legal tender but contrary to popular belief this does not mean that banks and retailers automatically have to accept them.
