Which non-regular UK 2 pound circulation coins have beads?
« on: December 09, 2020, 03:14:17 PM »
So far I have only found those with the Golden Guinea and Army themes to have bead circles.

The Golden Guinea commemorative has bead circles on both obverse and reverse.

Do you know of any others?

I do consider bead circles rather old-fashioned now. Maybe in other countries it is different.

There are several obverses that have beads - Marconi 2001, Trevithick steam loco 2004, Brunel 2006, Slavery 2007, Trinity House 2013, London Underground 2013 - as examples.

Interesting that they kept bead circles on some obverses but not others.

Am I right in that there are only two reverses with bead circles, as of this year?

Agree that there are only two issues with beads on the reverse.
