Great Britain 2 Pounds (Commonwealth Games)  1986
Great Britain 2 Pounds (Commonwealth Games) 1986

Like most of the two pound coins issued lately by the UK, these coins come in various compositions. The pattern and the date are the same, but the metallic content varies between nickel-brass, silver, and gold. Not only that, the silver versions come in two purities: 92.5 percent pure (sterling silver) and 50 percent pure.

The value can't be less than Face Value (FV): 2 pounds in Britain. At current exchange rates, that is about $3 US dollars (but look it up to be sure).
