Handover to Rio

This £2 coin is struck to Brilliant Uncirculated standard and comes in a superb presentation folder with interesting facts on the Closing Ceremony.

To mark the closing of the 2012 Games the world will be watching as London hands over the mantle to next host: Rio de Janeiro. As the final coin in the London 2012 collection, The Royal Mint has struck a £2 coin to commemorate the Handover to Rio, featuring an evocative design by Jonathan Olliffe. These coins certainly make a striking and befitting end to the London 2012 celebrations.
