Monday 7 October 2013: The return of the coin blip
I got this coin on Friday when I was selling some raffle tickets. I've seen it many times before, apparently there are about 10.2 million in circulation. It marks the sixtieth anniversary of the end of the second world war. It's supposed to be St Paul's Cathedral with crossed search lights. Along the edge it says " IN VICTORY MAGNANIMITY IN PEACE GOODWILL" which is quite good I think.
If you have never looked on the edge of a £2 coin, they are worth looking at, some have quite interesting things to say. Interestingly none of the £2 have anything pompous in Latin on their edges.
