Fake £2 coin!

Posted on Fri, 30 May 2014 by Phil Mussell - General News, Coin News

In recent months the news has been full of stories of fake £1 coins and how to detect them but we haven't, until now, heard of a fake £2 - especially not one as good as the example we found.

Weighing in at exactly the same weight as a genuine one, the fake is only detectable through it's "soapy" strike and the fact that the centre ring on the reverse is completely blank. Anymore examples out there? Let us know
