Northern Ireland £2 coin is now 'most valuable' in UK circulation

By Dick Barton

A 15-year-old £2 coin has become Northern Ireland's most valuable modern coin and is now said to be worth around £50.

The sought-after coin is one of four different designs of the 2002 Commonwealth Games £2 coin representing the four Home Nations: Northern Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales.

The Northern Ireland £2 coin is not only the rarest of these four Commonwealth Games coins, but it is also the most valuable of all 37 designs of £2 coins still in circulation, according to the ChangeChecker guide How Rare Is My £2?

Only 485,500 of these Northern Ireland coins were struck, the lowest number of any of the £2 coins still in circulation.
