£2 coin minting errors - Brunel Engineer

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

£2 Coin Error: Writing upside down: 1806-1859 ISAMBARD KINGDOM BRUNEL ENGINEERWriting upside down: 1806-1859 ISAMBARD KINGDOM BRUNEL ENGINEER

Writing upside down: 1806-1859 ISAMBARD KINGDOM BRUNEL ENGINEER

The inscription on the edge of the Brunel Paddington Station £2 coin reads "1806-1859 ISAMBARD KINGDOM BRUNEL ENGINEER". The writing is upside down when the coin is heads side up.

This is NOT a minting error

The 2006 Isambard Kingdom Brunel Engineer coin has the inscription 1806-1859 ISAMBARD KINGDOM BRUNEL ENGINEER struck onto the edge of the £2 before the heads and tails faces are struck.

The blank with edge writing in place can fall either way up into the machine that strikes the coin design showing and the Queen's portrait simultaneously.

There is a 50/50 chance that the writing will be upside down. This is not rare and based on mintage figures, about 3,964,125 Brunel Engineer £2 coins have the letter text upside down when the heads side faces up.

£2 Coin Error: Heads side: missing / misaligned dotsHeads side: missing / misaligned dots

Heads side: missing / misaligned dots

On the obverse (heads) side of the coin, there are small raised dots around the edge of the silver coloured section.

On some Brunel Engineer £2 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.
