  1. Single Metal Commemorative Issues, 1986 - 1996 In 1986 a nickel-brass two pound coin was issued to commemorate the 13th Commonwealth Games held in Scotland that year. During the succeeding years a total of six further commemorative two pound coins were issued. The coin weighs 15.98 grams and has a diameter of 28.40 mm. This is exactly the same specification as the gold two pound coin, and indeed in some years the same design has been struck as the year's gold issue. The edge of all issues is milled, although some have an additional edge inscription. The first six issues have the same obverse: Second Portrait, inscription ELIZABETH II DEI GRATIA REGINA F D starting low left, TWO POUNDS below. First type Reverse: Thistle on St Andrews Cross, 1986 above. Edge: XIII COMMONWEALTH GAMES SCOTLAND 1986 Issued to celebrate the 1986 Commonwealth Games held in Edinburgh.
  2. I have alot of the coins that have been posted in this thread. Does anybody know where I can find the value of them from?
  3. http://www.coinpeople.com/index.php/topic/33764-possible-1986-l2-error/?do=findComment&comment=630036 Photos are in this post I posted a long time ago. I'm just wondering if anyone else has the same coin or heard of this before.
  4. I'd add a picture but don't know how....
  5. I'm wondering if anyone can help me; I have 3 1986 £2 coins. sorry if I waffle on a bit at this point... From what I have read on a website (http://www.coins-of-...o.uk/dec2p.html) .... "As the edge inscriptions are stamped on the edge of blank coins before striking, they can (and do) appear either way up in theoretically equal quantities". This is where I need help on two of my coins the writing is one way and on the third the writing is the other way upBUT on the third coin not only is the writing the other way up from the first two it reads/spelt differently from the first two... 1st two coins: XIII COMMONWEALTH GAMES SCOTLAND 1986 + The third coin: XIII COMMONWEALTHGAMES SCOTLAND 1986 + Can you help or offer advice in this matter? Kelly
  6. Who are the British experts on this site?
