Gunpowder Plot £2

UK 2005 Gunpowder Plot £2 Coin

The gunpowder plot in 1605 was a failed assassination attempt of King James I by a group of English Catholics. The plan was to blow up the House of Lords duing the opening of Parliament on 5th November 1605, but Guy Fawkes was discovered the night before guarding 36 barrels of gunpowder and was subsequently executed along with seven other plotters.

This £2 marks the 400th anniversary of the plot, and the reverse features a montage of bishop's crosiers, swords and the Parliamentary mace symbolising the survival of the British establishment.
