    Hi Skipper84:

    I THINK it is a normal coin. The UK usually spells it out more with Elizabeths titles from time to time (see 1960's UK coins). In Canada the legend is usually just D.G. REGINA. Now being that the U.K.Two pound coin came out in a bimetallic format in 1997, it could have some value down the road if the mintage was low. I don't know I am just guessing here.

    Just my thoughts.

    "DG" are the initials, and "DEI GRA" is the longer abbreviation of the Latin for "by the Grace of God".

    "FD" are the initials, and "FID DEF" is the longer abbreviation of the Latin for "Defender of the Faith".

    The abbreviations, and their initials, are used rather interchangeably on coins of Great Britain and the Commonwealth countries.
