2007 Abolition of slavery circulated £2

£3.30

Description

Two commemorative £2 coins were issued by The Royal Mint in 2007, one celebrating the 300th anniversary of the Act of Union between Scotland and England, and the other commemorating the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the slave trade. David Gentleman’s simple yet powerful design depicting a broken link in the ‘chains of oppression’, which doubles as the zero in the anniversary date, 1807, features on this ‘abolition of the slave trade’ £2 coin. The broken chain link is surrounded by the inscription ‘An Act for the Abolition of the Slave Trade’ and the date ‘2007’.
