Am I Not A Man And A Brother

The Abolition of the Slave Trade Act 1807 was passed by the UK Parliament on 25th March 1807. This abolished the slave trade within the British Empire, and suggested that other European countries should do the same. Slavery itself was not abolished until 1833, but the 1807 act was a good step in the right direction, and it was thought it would lead to the death of slavery.

This £2 coin was issued to commemorate the 200th anniversary of this Act, and the suitably simple reverse design by David Gentleman illustrates the year "1807" with the zero formed from a broken link of chains. The full title of Parliament's Act surrounds this, along with the year "2007". Ian Rank-Broadley's obverse design is used, with the edge inscription "AM I NOT A MAN AND A BROTHER".

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 AM I NOT A MAN AND A BROTHER 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.
