Jersey 2019 2 Pound varieties.  Peter Riley
Last year I purchased a 2019 Jersey 2 pound bi-metallic coin with a likeness of a gorilla on the reverse. I decided to purchase a second one a couple of weeks later.  I noticed that one of the coins has no denomination on it. I have since discovered that a few of these coins were released with the wrong obverse.
