The Two Pound Gold Coin - sometimes referred to as the Double Sovereign - contains 14.63 grams of gold (twice the weight of a Sovereign). The coin is 22 carat gold.
This coin was one of 1000 produced to mark the 200th anniversary of the Abolition of the Slave Trade within the British Empire, back in 1807.
The obverse (front) of the coin bears the Ian Rank-Broadley (IRB) portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. The coin reads ELIZABETH II D G REG FID DEF and TWO POUNDS.
The reverse of the coin bears the words AN ACT FOR THE ABOLITION OF THE SLAVE TRADE and the year 2007. The 0 in 1807 is depicted as part of a sequence of chain links, but the nought is broken to signify that slave trading is finished. The initials DG appear refer to artist David Gentleman.
The edge of the coin also has an inscribed message, reading: ‘AM I NOT A MAN, AND A BROTHER’.
Due to their status as British Legal tender, these Two Pound coins are Capital Gains Tax Free (CGT Exempt), making them a good choice for British investors.
