2021 Two Pounds 1oz Silver Proof – Gandhi


The 2021 Two Pounds 1oz Silver Proof - Gandhi

Mahatma Gandhi was an Indian anti-colonial nationalist and political ethicist who used non-violent resistance campaigns that led to India's Independence from British rule. He inspired civil rights and freedom across the world.

Born as Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi in Porbandar, India on 2 October 1869, Gandhi later studied law in London. He went on to promote Civil Rights in South Africa and India. It became a life-long and successful campaign.

The honorific name Mahatma, meaning "great-souled" in Sanskrit, was given to him in 1914 and has been used as a title since.

These coins are available (subject to stock) from the Royal Mint Shop (product code UK21MGSP).

The Reverse of the coin, by Heena Glover, depicts a lotus, the national flower of India. The legend is probably Gandhi's most famous quote: 'My life is my message'.

Edge is milled.

The Obverse shows a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark.

Which Mint: The Royal Mint
The Royal Mint is the designated place for the UK to mint coins. It dates back well over 1000 years and is a Government-owned company. 

Formed in the reign of Alfred the Great about the year 886, during the period 1279-1812 it was generally referred to as The Tower Mint as it was housed at the Tower of London. The Master of The Royal Mint has included famous figures such as Sir Isaac Newton.

Since 2010 it has operated as Royal Mint Ltd, a company owned by HM Treasury, under an exclusive contract to supply all coinage for the UK although it also produces medals and coins for other countries. It is currently located at Llantrisant, Wales.

There is also an on-line shop at The Royal Mint Shop.
Country of Origin: United Kingdom
The United Kingdom (UK) is the Union of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. It is often refered to as Great Britain (GBR). It has a long, rich history.

The orignal coinage was Pounds, Shillings and Pence but since decimalisation on 15 February 1971, it is £1 = 100p, that is One Pound = 100 pence. The coinage of the UK is also a long history, the Royal Mint being established as long ago as 886AD when coins were hammered. Today there is perhaps 30 billion coins in circulation, and many (numismatic) collectors coins and sets are issued frequently in gold, silver and other metals.
