On my desk at work I have a small stack of coins that I have been collecting, mainly special editions.

This morning I picked up one of the 2004 £2 coins, which have a steam locomotive and the inscription "R.TREVITHICK 1804 INVENTION · INDUSTRY · PROGRESS 2004", so out of the set of £2 coins I have 1999, 2002, 2003, and 2004. I don't have either the Marconi design (2001) or any of the "standard" "History of Technological Achievement" designs.

I also have the "Public Libraries" fifty pence and Jersey and Gibraltar 10p coins.

I know I've had one of the Marconi GBP 2 coins. I just can't work out where I put it. I hope I didn't absent-mindedly spend it.
