Own an original Football £2 coin issued for Euro '96

In 1996, England hosted the 10th European football championship and a commemorative £2 coin was struck 'In Celebration of Football'.

Now you have the rare chance to own this one-of-a-kind £2 coin in uncirculated condition.

The coin is well known for its distinctive reverse which resembles a football. It also boasts an unusual unusual concave surface which adds a 3-Dimensional aspect to the football design. 

The year of 1996 is prominent, and the sixteen small rings represent the sixteen teams which competed in the tournament. 

The 1996 Celebration of Football £2 was the very last single metal £2 coin before the bi-metallic versions were introduced in 1997.
