Gibraltar £2 (Two pounds) Bimetallic Silver Proof Coin — the 12 Labours of Hercules

In this part, you are going to see the labours of Hercules on £2 bimetallic metal in silver, made by the Pobjoy Mint on behalf of the government of Gibraltar during the period of 1997 to 2000. Based on KM# info, it is limited at 7,500 each, but the entire 12 coins in a presentation box only 1,000 sets available. List no. in Krause book is covering from KM#755a, KM#756a, KM#757a, … to KM#766a. It is really hard to see the 12-coin as set in a Pobjoy presentation box, especially in silver bimetallic proof grade. Note coins made before 2000 are so-called silver gilt, but gold plated on silver after 2000.

  2. Slay the nine-headed Lernaean Hydra (#KM756a) (note: silver gilt)

  8. Steal the Mares Diomedes (KM#762a) (note: silver gilt)
