The Royal Mint issued this £2 proof gold coin as a commemorative collectors coin to mark the 1999 Rugby World Cup held in Wales. Only 2,500 of these Two Pound coins were issued by the Mint.

The Two Pound Gold Coin - sometimes referred to as the Double Sovereign - contains 14.63 grams of gold. Due to their status as British Legal tender they are Capital Gains Tax Free (CGT Exempt).

The reverse of the coin was designed by sculptor and medallist Ron Dutton. The coin itself a representation of a packed Rugby stadium viewed from above. The edge of the coin reads RUGBY WORLD CUP 1999.

The Rugby World Cup finals were hosted by Wales in 1999 but unusually, due to the required amount of stadia to host such an event, most of the matches were played outside of the country. The Millennium Stadium in Cardiff hosted the opening game and the World Cup Final (in which Australia beat France), while England, Scotland, Ireland and France provided the settings for most of the other matches.
