A very desirable GOLD proof £2 issued by the Royal Mint in 2001. The Bi-coloured Gold coin is made of a 22ct ‘Red’ Gold outer disc and a 22ct ‘yellow’ Gold inner disc. Only 2500 were issued for worldwide distribution.
The coin was struck to commemorate the first radio transmition accross the Atlantic by Marconi in 1901, and is one of the nicest Gold Proof coin designs to obtain.
Encapsulated and housed in the original Royal Mint box with the Certificate of Authenticity it is a must for any commemorative collectors.
