Add to Cart:

In 1996, the year England hosted the tenth European Championship, the Royal Mint struck a special £2 coin in celebration of football.

The reverse design gives the impression of a football, an impression accentuated by the unusual dished or bowl-like effect.  The special year of 1996 is highlighted amid the familiar pattern of the ball and there are sixteen small rings to symbolise each of the teams who competed in the finals.​​​​​​

The drive and tempo of the modern football match are captured in the reverse design created by John Mills, whose initials appear in the ball's top panel.  The obverse bears the Queen's portrait by Raphael Maklouf.
