7,452,250 Brunel Paddington Station 2 coins were minted

Although this is a large number of coins, finding a Brunel Paddington Station 2 coin in your change is not so easy - 14 years after it first entered circulation.

Demand from businesses for 2 coins has fallen since the release of the new 1 coin - lower numbers in tills means that any individual 2 coin design can take time to find.

Scarcity: 7,452,250 Brunel Paddington Station 2 coins were minted showing the date 2006. The coins not held in private collections can be received as change today, accounting for about 1 in 154 of the two pound coins in circulation.

The heads side of the coin is known as the Obverse, the tails side showing a section of Paddington Station's roof and the name BRUNEL is known as the Reverse. The edge is milled (vertical line indented) with an inscription that reads SO MANY IRONS IN THE FIRE.
