One of the most prized trophies in English Football, The FA Cup is one of the most exhilarating knockout competitions in England, and the world! A scintillating competition for neutral football fans, the structure of The FA Cup is one that allows lower-level teams to dream that they can achieve the impossible, and secure a unique piece of silverware and a place in football folklore.
With 2022 marking 150 years since the introduction of the competition, The Royal Mint is extremely excited to announce the release of this Unique Brilliant Uncirculated £2 Coin, the first time the prestigious Trophy has ever been showcased on a UK Coin!
With over 700 teams now vying for the trophy, giant killings are almost a certainty in the modern day with many gripping matches taking place in the iconic third round where Premier League giants enter the competition.
Whether you are a football fanatic or a general collector, this Stunning Coin represents a unique celebration of the world’s longest-running football competition and is sure to sell out extremely quickly.
Depicted quite superbly on the reverse of the Coin is Matt Dent and Christian Davies's interpretation of the FA Cup with its debut year inscribed on the trophy and a reminder of its 150 years of history.
Showcased on the obverse of this release is the renowned Fifth Portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II designed by Jody Clark.
