Comments

Reports have been received regarding 2000, 2001 and 2002 dated issues having a slightly different shaped 2 than the rest of this series. For example, the top of the 2 in 2000 ends in a curved drop while the top of the 2 in 2005 ends in a point.



In 2008 a mule was introduced using the obverse from this coin with the Matthew Dent Royal Shield reverse.
