1995 UNITED NATIONS 50TH ANNIVERSARY GOLD PROOF £2 TWO POUND DOUBLE SOVEREIGN COIN
The United Nations was established in the aftermath of a devastating war, created to maintain world peace and security and to work for social progress. It finds its roots in the Atlantic Charter which, after a series of meetings in warships off the coast of Newfoundland, was drawn up in 1941 by US President Franklin D Roosevelt and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill.
In search of peace, the Charter called for the fullest collaboration between all nations.
In June 1945 some fifty nations meeting in San Francisco approved the United Nations Charter and on 24 October, now annually celebrated as United Nations Day, the Charter was ratified and brought into effect.
Fifty years later, in 1995 the United Nations celebrates a history of remarkable achievement and the beginning of a new era requiring the continuing co-operation of each and every nation.
The United Kingdom, one of the original members, celebrates the milestone with a magnificant Gold Proof £2 Two Pound Coin.
The reverse design has been created by the distinguished sculptor Michael Rizzello, who saw military service during and after the Second World War and therefore has personal experience of a world at war.
Of his design for the historic United Nations 50th Anniversary £2 Two Pound Coin, he says ėthe flags clustered around the 50th Anniversary emblem are purely symbolic and I deliberately avoided any reference to number, individual member states or their perceived importance: simply, nations uniting around and into the United Nationsė.
The obverse bears the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Raphael Maklouf.
These legal tender coins have been struck to proof quality using specially prepared dies and highly polished blanks.
