This coin is one of four in the set of XVII Commonwealth Games 2002 coins. The 4 coins look very similar, with the only difference being the small flag within the circle.
The England and 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 Ireland coin / flag.2002 XVII Commonwealth Games £2 Coins @_CoinHunter Tweet
