The 2 mark coin was issued by the Principality of Schaumburg-Lippe in 1898 and 1904, during the reign of Prince George of the House of Lippe.

The coin is composed of the same metal and has the same measurements as every standard 2 mark coin issued by the states of the German Empire at the time, having initially been struck on a .900 fine silver planchet weighing 11.111 grams and measuring 28 millimeters in diameter and 2 millimeters thick. A left-facing portrait of Prince George is engraved in the center of the obverse, partially encircled by the legend "GEORG FÜRST ZU SCHAUMBURG-LIPPE". Directly beneath the portrait is an "A" mint mark, which signifies that the coin was minted at the mint in Berlin, Prussia. The Reichsadler of the German Empire is displayed on the reverse, accompanied by the state title of the Second Reich (DEUTSCHES REICH), the coin's value, and the year. In total, only 10,362 examples were issued, 362 of which were struck in proof quality.
