Writing upside down: SOMETHING WILL TURN UP
The inscription on the edge of the Brunel Paddington Station £2 coin reads "SOMETHING WILL TURN UP". The writing is upside down when the coin is heads side up.
This is NOT a minting error
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 Charles Dickens £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.
