Gunpowder Plot £2 'Britain in Coins' Pack

November 1605 saw the failed assassination attempt of King James I, plotted by a group of English Catholics that included Guy Fawkes. 

2005 marked the 400th Anniversary of the Gunpowder Plot and to commemorate this pivotal moment in history, The Royal Mint issued a commemorative £2 coin.

The reverse of the coin depicts a montage of bishop's crosiers, swords and Parliamentary mace, symbolising the survival of the British establishment.

The Gunpowder Plot £2 'Britain in Coins' Pack features the £2 in the centre while the expertly illustrated pack brings history to life in a way that is specifically designed for Junior Change Checkers and includes facts about the historical event.

Priced at just £7.99 (+p&p), the Gunpowder Plot £2 'Britain in Coins' Pack is the ideal way to get your collection started!
