Commonwealth Games 2 pound coins for Northern Ireland and England compared

This coin is one of four in the set of XVII Commonwealth Games 2002 coins. It has the lowest mintage of any £2 coin. The Commonwealth Games Northern Ireland and the other 3 in the set Commonwealth Games (Wales), Commonwealth Games (England) and Commonwealth Games (Scotland) look very similar, with the only difference being the small flag within the circle.

The England and Northern Ireland coins can look the same as the flags are so similar, but on very close inspection (take a clear in focus photo and zoom in!) you can make out the star with the crown shape above it on the Northern Ireland coin / flag.
