In 2002 to mark the celebration of sporting excellence, the Royal Mint released a very Limited Issue Brilliant Uncirculated £2 Two Pound 4 Coin Set First Day Cover to commemorate the XVII Commonwealth Games.
The reverse is the work of artist and sculptor Matthew Bonaccorsi, a skilled member of the Royal Mint engraving team, whose design was the winning entry in a competition.
Representing celebration, victory and sportsmanship it shows a moving figure holding aloft a banner, the top of which is divided into lines symbolising the lanes of a running track or swimming pool.
There are four versions of the coin, one for each of the participating teams from the United Kingdom, England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
They are featured in turn, by their flags appearing in cameo.
The obverse design is Ian Rank Broadley's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.
