Falkland Islands. Bimetallic 2 pounds
« on: October 18, 2020, 01:03:14 AM »
Please help me find the answer to my question.
First, a little background. Yesterday I asked for help with the official publications on the issue of bimetallic coins 2 pounds of The British Commonwealth. One of the forum members (stef) provided me with the following link https://nationalarchives.gov.fk/jdownloads/Gazettes%20Proclamations%20Notices/2004.pdf . This file on page 347 contains information about the "30 years of Falkland Islands Coinage" coin. I was very surprised to learn about the existence of this coin with the date 2003. I didn't see it on sale.
Question: Was the 2003 coin actually issued? Or was it canceled?

There are a few about dated 2003 -
I don't think they differ from the 2004 issues though.

Some more here (including pictures)

Thank you very much! So I will fix my catalog. )))) And search for a 2003 coin for collection. In my opinion, if the edge is different, then this is a kind of coin.
