Design details:

Two different obverses of this coin were minted one with the 1998-2015 portrait by Ian Rank-Broadley (only in sets and from HMS Belfast) and one with the new portrait of the Queen by Jody Clark. There is also die-break variety which has added something that resembles a flag to the top of the mast.

Commemoration marking the centenary of the First World War continues with a United Kingdom 2 coin that honours the Royal Navy. With a detailed design featuring a mighty battleship, this official coin captures the strength of a force whose contribution to victory in the First World War deserves to be remembered. The design of the coin depicts a battleship from the Revenge-class battleships, based on H.M.S Royal Oak. 2017
