Description
The coin is round in shape with a raised rim on the obverse and the reverse. The coin’s edge is milled.

The Obverse: depicts the portrait of the Queen by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS, FSNAD.

The Reverse: in 2001, a hundred years since Marconi's Atlantic leap, a commemorative 2 Pound coin celebrates his great achievement and all that has stemmed from it. Appropriately enough, the special reverse design takes wireless waves as its theme. They feature in both the centre and outer border, while a spark of electricity linking the zeros of the date generates a radiating series of three dots, indicating the Morse code letter S and representing the signal successfully transmitted across 1800 miles of ocean in 1901.
