|Coin||Twopence 1817 (Circulating)|
There were two forms of twopence, the currency issue like this piece (with a duller surface), and a special piece for the Maundy Thursday ceremonies - both with numeral 2 on the reverse but the Maundy issues have a proof-like finish.
Apart from the surface quality, they are indistinguishable. For the purpose of completeness though, the Maundy coins are listed separately in the Non Circulating Legal Tender (NCLT) section.
