  1. Because they are in NGC holders it is very difficult to get a photo, but I was looking at some of my British 2 Pound non-PM coins I have and I noticed the edge lettering on the coins usually faces down away from the Queen's bust. I have a WWI Aviation coin from an annual coin set slabbed in an NGC holder that has the edge lettering facing up towards the Queen's bust. To put it another way, on the standard coins when the Queen's head is facing me and I tilt the coin to look at the edge lettering it is readable. The coin in question in this same position shows the letters upside down. The inscription is "The Sky Rained Heroes". Does anyone else have errors like this? The NGC label doesn't show it as an error coin, but I think maybe whoever sent it in for grading didn't realize it was an error themselves. I've seen a few comments online about some coins having edge lettering upside down, but couldn't find any information on this particular coin. In the picture below one can see the EROES of the word HEROES clearly facing the Queen's head side of the coin, which is not the way the other coins have the letters oriented.
  2. Does anyone collect the non-precious metal 2 pound coins in the UK? If so, do you use a coin book? The annual or definitive sets released by the Royal Mint? Graded and slabbed versions? I've got a few now - the 2015 reintroduction of the Britannia portrait both in circulated condition and from the definitive coin set slabbed, the WWI aviation definitive coin set slabbed, and am very excited for the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley's Modern Prometheus (Frankenstein!) coin this year. I love the Kew Gardens 50 pence and the Sir Isaac Newton of the same denomination, but only have the latter slabbed by NGC. Photos below are mine and of my coins.
