Articles of Union
Articles of Union

Since 1603, when King James VI of Scotland became King James I of England, both countries have had the same monarchy. They were, however, still separate countries with individual parliaments. There were several attempts to unite the countries but it wasn't until 1st May 1707, when the Acts of Union were finally passed, that the English and Scottish Parliaments united to become the Parliament of Great Britain.

In 2007, the tricentenary of this act was celebrated with a £2 coin. The reverse design by Yvonne Holton depicts four pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, fitting together to unite the English Rose, Scottish Thistle and two portcullises. The denomination and significant dates surround this image, and the edge inscription "UNITED INTO ONE KINGDOM" summarises the event. Ian Rank-Broadley's 4th portrait is used on the obverse.

Minting errors: Is there a Act of Union Jigsaw £2 coin mint error?

Sellers of coins from circulation would like to sell coins for as much over face value as possible, so often refer to "rare mint error" in the description on marketplaces such as eBay. If you are looking to buy this coin, read this first to ensure you do not pay far more than the coin is worth as a collector item.

No mint errors for this coin have been confirmed by The Royal Mint.

£2 Coin Error: Misaligned dots Misaligned dots
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.

£2 Coin Error: Edge inscription upside down Edge inscription upside down
The inscription on the edge of the coin UNITED INTO ONE KINGDOM 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.
