About This Design

In 1804 the first steam locomotive, designed by Cornish engineer Richard Trevithick, made its historic journey in South Wales. His invention led to the development of rail travel and played an important part in the industrial revolution. To mark the 200th anniversary of this great achievement, The Royal Mint issued a new £2 coin in 2004. The reverse design is the work of Royal Mint engraver Robert Lowe and is based on Trevithick’s 1804 Penydarren locomotive. The design features a representation of a steam locomotive engine with the words ‘Two Pounds’ above the image and inside a cog wheel, the words ‘R. Trevithick 1804 Invention Industry Progress 2004’ as a circumscription.
