Symbols of State, represented in this design by the mace, crosier and sword, allude to the survival under threat of the British establishment. The circular arrangement in which they are shown is also suggestive of a Catherine Wheel and the surrounding stars are a further reference to fireworks. The dates are rendered in an early-seventeenth century style of font.
The 2005 £2 coin is Peter Forster's first coin design.
