2023 King Charles III 'Flying Scotsman' £2 Gold Proof Coin - Boxed / COA
Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the most famous train in the world 'The Flying Scotsman'. Built to service the East Coast Main Line between Edinburgh and London. The journey covered 393 miles, the locomotive was the first to be clocked officially at over 100mph in 1934 making it the fastest train in the world at that time.
The service from Edinburgh to London started in 1862 and was known as the Special Scotch Express and is still operated today by LNER, although no train has been idealised like the original 'Flying Scotsman' which was even the inspiration for Harry Potter's Hogwarts Express.
