This £2 gold proof coin commemorates the 400th anniversary of the failed Gunpowder Plot by Guy Fawkes and others. A maximum of 1,500 of these coins were produced by the Royal Mint.

The Two Pound coin contains symbols of the State in the form of a mace, crosier and sword which allude to the survival of the British government. The design is by Peter Forster and there is an additional phrase around the edge of the coin which reads REMEMBER REMEMBER FIFTH OF NOVEMBER.

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).
