St Pauls Cathedral
St Pauls Cathedral

During the Blitz of World War Two, London experienced heavy bombing raids from the German air fleets. "Blitz" is taken from the German word "Blitzkrieg" which translates as lightning war. One of the most impressive images from London during the Blitz is of St Paul's Cathedral, unmarked whilst the surroundings are reduced to rubble and smoke.

This image is seen on the reverse of the coin by Bob Elderton – St Paul's Cathedral surrounded by searchlights. Although St Paul's Cathedral is the feature of the coin, it was in fact designed to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the end of the Second World War in 1945 (VE Day) when the German forces surrendered. The obverse shows Ian Rank-Broadley's 4th portrait, and the edge inscription states "In Victory Magnanimity In Peace Goodwill" which is taken from the preface text of Churchill's history of the Second World War.

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.
