The 1995 Two Pound proof gold coin was struck to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the end of the Second World War. The Two Pound Gold Coin - sometimes referred to as the Double Sovereign - contains 14.63 grams of fine gold (twice the weight of a Sovereign) and is 22 carat in purity. 2,500 of these coins were issued by the Royal Mint.

The reverse side of the £2 coin was designed by John Mills. It features the dove of peace and the inscription round the edge of the coin "1945 IN PEACE GOODWILL 1995". The obverse side features Raphael Maklouf's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II - the third of her official portraits.

Due to their status as British Legal tender these coins are Capital Gains Tax Free (CGT Exempt), making them a good choice for British investors.

We are often asked "Is the £2 coin in my change made of Gold?" -the answer is almost always "No".  Versions of this coin were released in base metal and are circulating fairly commonly.  As shown in the final picture - there are some fairly obvious differences between the Gold and base metal versions.  If your coin is thicker than the current bi-metal £2 then it is not Gold.  If it's a similar thickness to a 10p coin - then it could be Gold and worth significantly more than it's face value.
