Not since the Olympic Games of London 2012 has The Royal Mint struck a coin with a sporting theme. What better way to pay tribute to this next chapter in Britain’s great sporting decade than with the ultimate coin from the official range – the beautiful Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games 50p struck to perfection in 22 carat gold and enhanced with our signature Proof finish? Your coin carries a vibrant design by new coin designer Alex Loudon, the power of sport embodied in a cyclist and athlete, the home of the Games reflected in his choice of Scottish Saltire and lettering inspired by Glasgow-born architect, artist and designer, Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
Many strive for the glory of gold, but few can achieve it. Only 260 of these strictly limited presentations will be available to satisfy collectors and visitors to the Games from around the world. Your coin is presented in a Royal Mint display case complete with a Certificate of Authenticity to confirm its official status and pedigree. You can also enjoy the accompanying booklet that explores the story behind Glasgow 2014.
