1999 Rugby World Cup Circulated £2 coin



In 1999 the world’s finest rugby-playing nations came together in the spirit of competition to battle for the Wed Ellis Cup in the finals of the Rugby World Cup. Hosted by the Welsh Rugby Union, the matches were played at venues throughout the five nations of England, France, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Ron Dutton has captured the pulsating atmosphere, movement, sound and colour of the great game of rugby, and the enthusiasm of its spectators, on the reverse of the 1999 £2 coin struck to commemorate this sporting event.
