Times change, but Britannia endures, a familiar and welcome presence on Britain’s coinage for almost 2,000 years – a symbol of hope, unity, pride and trust, guardian of our shores.
This £2 coin is a great way to celebrate her renaissance. Featuring the new portrait of Britannia, it is legal tender, but far too special to spend. Antony Dufort’s stunning interpretation of Britannia is respectful of times past, but recasts her for a brand new era; timeless, symbolic, stirring and inspirational.
It is wonderful to welcome her back to coins in daily use, as she is reborn on the nation’s £2 coin. Now you can be among the first to celebrate the return of a true national icon with this beautiful coin.
