Q:

What fruit is on the back of a two-pence coin?

A:

The back of a 2-pence coin does not feature any fruit. The current design of the coin displays a portion of the Royal Shield showing the Lion Rampant from the Royal Banner of Scotland. Past designs do not depict any fruit on the back or front either.

The 2-pence coins in circulation between 1971 and 2008 featured three plumes within a coronet, an element from the Badge of the Prince of Wales. The present design of the 2-pence coin has been in use since 2008. The 1-penny, 5-pence, 10-pence, 20-pence and 50-pence coins in circulation also depict parts of the Royal Shield.
