About This Design 

From 25 July to 4 August 2002, the city of Manchester played host to the Commonwealth Games. In the biggest competition in the 72-year history of the Games, some of the world’s greatest athletes competed in fourteen individual sports and three team sports over ten days of sporting and cultural activity. To mark this celebration of sporting excellence, The Royal Mint issued a commemorative £2 coin. Matthew Bonaccorsi’s reverse design represents celebration, victory and sportsmanship. It depicts a moving figure holding aloft a banner, the top of which is divided into lines symbolising the lanes of a swimming pool. The design is completed with the edge inscription ‘· SPIRIT OF FRIENDSHIP · MANCHESTER 2002’. Four versions of the coin were produced, one for each of the participating teams from the United Kingdom and distinguished by a cameo version of their respective flags.

    I know these coins are from circulated currency, but this coin was very discoloured at the top right, partly obscuring the £2 and writing above and to the side of the coin.Very disappointed.
