Capture the excitement of London 2012. Be part of it – start collecting now
Be part of the greatest sporting event on earth with the London 2012 sports collection.
The Games are one of the most exciting international events ever to come to the UK, promising all of the drama, emotion and suspense of this historic sporting occasion.
In January 2009 The Royal Mint launched its biggest ever competition, inviting the British public to design a series of new 50p coins to commemorate the London 2012 Games. Over 30,000 designs were received from all over the country, and the very best designs were selected for each sport of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. And now they’re available for you to collect.
Showcasing all 29 of the Olympic and Paralympic sports, this series of beautifully minted London 2012 50p coins in cupro-nickel is presented in fun and vibrant packaging, while silver Proof versions are also available as a magnificent collection – the perfect mementoes of the 2012 Games.
