Florence Nightingale Portrait

Florence Nightingale was born on 12th May 1820, and died 13th August 1910. She is well known for her work during the Crimean war, training and then managing nurses, caring for the wounded soldiers. Nightingale is considered to have significantly improved nursing standards, and was known as "The Lady with the Lamp" when making her rounds at night. She opened a nursing school which is now part of King's College London, and published her work to spread medical knowledge.

The coin also marks 150 years since her "Notes on Nursing" was published, with the edge inscription of "150 YEARS OF NURSING".

This £2 coin marks the centenary of Florence Nightingale's death, showing nurse's hands feeling for the pulse of a patient on the reverse, which is surrounded by Florence Nightingale's name and key dates with the denomination. This design is by Gordon Summers and Ian Rank-Broadley's obverse is also used.

Error associated with this coinCoin Image
On the Obverse (heads) side of the coin, there are small raised dots around the edge of the silver coloured section of the coin. On some coins these dots may be offset, so, for example they may appear away from the edge above the Queens head and be very close the the edge or missing from the opposite side (below the Queens neck).

This is common on all two pound coins minted before 2015 and is not considered a minting error.

The inscription on the edge of the coin 150 YEARS OF NURSING is upside down when the coin is Obverse (heads) side up.

This is common on all two pound coins and is not a minting error as the inscription is not struck a certain way up. Any two pound coin can have the writing on the edge any way up.
