Full Answer

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.
