The National Gallery and The Royal Mint collectable bicentenary coin!


To celebrate 200 years of the National Gallery, The Royal Mint and the National Gallery have developed a collectable commemorative £2 coin. Designed by Edwina Ellis, the coin portrays the central Portico façade of the National Gallery building in Trafalgar Square, London. The coin also features an edge inscription MAIORVM GLORIA POSTERIS LVMEN EST’ meaning ‘the glory of our ancestors is a light to our descendants’. This phrase is inscribed on the ceiling in the Wilkins Building of the Gallery, conveying the notion that the great artists of the past inspire those of the future – a founding principle of the National Gallery. The obverse has the official coinage portrait of His Majesty The King, designed by Martin Jennings.


First released as part of Royal Mint’s 2024 Annual Sets, the coin is now available to buy individually. This £2 coin is presented in a folded wallet, with a detailed account of the history of the National Gallery.
