Preview of London 2012 Commemorative Coins

Tuesday, July 26, 2011


The special London 2012 Olympic 50 pence coins have a reverse side of each of the 29 sports designed by citizens of England and Wales. In order to fit with the all-inclusive, universal image of the London games, the successful coin designers represent a rich selection of society, from a Manchester police office to a Bristol 9 year old schoolgirl. This has been approved by the Queen and the treasury. When announcing the coins launch, London 2012 Olympic chairman Lord Coe said:

"Coins are a part of the fabric of our daily life, so to have a range of coins designed specifically to celebrate London 2012 is a huge honour - made all the more special by the fact that members of the public have designed them."

These two kids along with other 27 designers who contribute the coins design 

 Florence Jackson  (9 years old)

Theo Crutchley-Mack  (16 years old)
