Comments

In 1992 the metal composition for the two pence circulation strikes was changed from bronze to copper plated steel in order to reduce the cost of production.
In 1998 the circulation issues were struck in both bronze and copper plated steel in approximately equal quantities.
In 1999 the Proof issues were struck in bronze instead of copper plated steel.

Reports have been received regarding obverse varieties for the
1998 and 2004 year issues but they are yet to be confirmed:
1998 - I points to right of dot, A points to left of dot
2004 - I points to left of dot, A points to right of dot
