The shilling is the official currency in Uganda since 1966, when it replaced the East African shilling. The official currency symbol is USh. The Bank of Uganda introduced the first coins in denominations of 5, 10, 20, and 50 cents and 1 and 2 shillings, followed by 5 shillings in 1976. Ten years later, 5 and 10 shillings coins were introduced, followed by 50, 100, 200 and 500 in 1998. Nowadays are circulating 1, 2, 5, 10, 50, 100, 200, 500, and 1,000 shillings coins.

The 2 Ugandan shilling coin front design features the National Coat of Arms (consists of a shield divided into two sections; the first section contains a wavy pattern representing the waves of Lake Victoria and Lake Albert, the second section has a sun and the traditional Ugandan drum. The shield has two crossed spears behind it. It is supported by an East African crowned crane (Balearica regulorum gibbericeps): The National Bird of Uganda and the Ugandan kob (Kobus kob thomasi). The shield stands on a grassy mound divided by an undulating silhouette depicting the River Nile. Two major cash crops, coffee, and cotton flank the depiction of the river. At the bottom is the national motto: “For God and my country.”), and the denomination. The reverse coin design illustrates the numeral denomination of a cotton plant, a cotton bag below and the issue date. This coin is part of the 1987 series, its rim is plain, and its color is bronze.
