HC Deb 03 May 1985 vol 78 c258W
Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if Her Majesty's Government have plans to issue any new commemorative coins.

Mr. Lawson

Her Majesty the Queen has been graciously pleased to approve the Master of the Mint's recommendation that a special £2 piece be issued to commemorate the Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh in 1986. There will be a normal version of the coin issued at face value, and collectors' versions, in precious metals and base metals, issued at a premium.
