I obtained the following in change today.

First one that I have seen.  Search continues for the King James Bible coin.



Congratulations. Good find and an encouragement to see the real thing.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.


Just last week I got my first ever 2010 Florence Nightingale two pound coin in change. Nice and shiny - looked like someone had taken it out of a mint set. And just last month I got my first Girl Guides 50p in change.

Very nice! :) I too have Nightingale coin, but miss the King James Bible, this one and of-course, the handover (2012) coin..

By a lucky fluke of fate, the first cash transaction I made in the UK on my current trip there, in a motorway services on the M4, yielded a Mary Rose £2. (Also a 2005 WW2 one, of which I have plenty already, so it went somewhat fittingly into the church collection plate at my great-uncle's funeral, the reason for my trip -- he was a soldier in the Royal Engineers in WW2.)


I am still trying to find a few more of the Mary Rose coins.

Also have not seen a single King James Bible coin.

Only interesting £2 coin that I have found in circulation lately has been a 2002 Commonwealth Games coin with the English flag on it.


The English one is the only one I'm missing out of those four...
