London Underground Roundel
The iconic London Underground roundel (originally known as the "bar and circle") was first used in 1908 as a platform nameboard, to make the station name stand out amongst all the advertising. Today, the red circle with a blue line through it is used on all underground stations, and similar designs are used on other Transport for London services. Old roundels are quite desirable to some collectors.
2013 marks 150 years since the first part of the Underground was opened, and the roundel branding has become strongly associated with it. The reverse of this coin was designed by Edwina Ellis and shows the Underground roundel and the key dates of the anniversary, with lettering in the Johnston typeface that is used for all Underground signs. The edge inscription is the phrase "MIND THE GAP", synonymous with the London Underground. Ian Rank-Broadley's obverse design is found on the other side.

|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.
