London Underground Roundel
London Underground Roundel

The iconic London Underground roundel (originally known as the "bar and circle") was first used in 1908 as a platform nameboard, to make the station name stand out amongst all the advertising. Today, the red circle with a blue line through it is used on all underground stations, and similar designs are used on other Transport for London services. Old roundels are quite desirable to some collectors.

2013 marks 150 years since the first part of the Underground was opened, and the roundel branding has become strongly associated with it. The reverse of this coin was designed by Edwina Ellis and shows the Underground roundel and the key dates of the anniversary, with lettering in the Johnston typeface that is used for all Underground signs. The edge inscription is the phrase "MIND THE GAP", synonymous with the London Underground. Ian Rank-Broadley's obverse design is found on the other side.

Minting errors: Is there a London Underground - Roundel £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 MIND THE GAP 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.
