The Mary Rose as depicted in the Anthony Roll
The Mary Rose was one of Henry VIII's warships. Launched in 1511, and rebuilt in 1536, she sank in July 1545. Although the cause of sinking is still unknown, the wreck was discovered in 1971, and was raised in 1982. Artefacts were also found amongst the wreckage, such as weapons, sailing equipment and supplies. The ship is now on display at the Mary Rose Museum in Portsmouth, where she was first built.
The design of this £2 coin is by John Bergdahl, showing the Mary Rose on the sea, surrounded by stylised text of 'The Mary Rose' and the denomination. The edge inscription states 'YOUR NOBLEST SHIPPE 1511', with the obverse design by Ian Rank-Broadley.

|Error associated with this coin||Coin 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.
