Award-winning designers Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby have created a special-edition £2 coin to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the London Underground. The front shows a train emerging from a tunnel and carries an unusual patterned edge inspired by Harry Beck’s iconic Tube map. Two quid seems a paltry sum for such a smart piece of design heritage.
