Queen Elizabeth II's fourth portrait can be seen on the obverse, designed by Ian Rank-Broadley.
The two pounds piece is made of solid 22 carat gold (Gold Fineness of 0.916), and weighs 15.98 grams. It has a diameter of 28.40mm.

The outer disc is made of 'red' gold, with the inner disc being 'yellow' gold.





The coin was housed originally in its Royal Mint acrylic screw top capsule, presented in its Royal Mint green leatherette case, accompanied with an individually numbered certificate of authenticity.

Mintage: 311 (may include coins issued as part of a set). Minted at The Royal Mint.
