The Two Pound Gold Coin - sometimes referred to as the Double Sovereign - contains 14.63 grams of gold (twice the weight of a Sovereign). Due to their status as British Legal tender they are Capital Gains Tax Free (CGT Exempt), so they are a good choice for British investors.
The obverse (front) of the coin bears the fourth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley.
Boxed with certificate.
