Designed by the nation

London 2012 LogoIn January 2009 the Royal Mint launched its biggest ever competition, inviting the British public to design a series of new 50p coins. Thousands of excellent designs were received from all over the UK, featuring all 29 sports of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The best designs were selected and now they’ve been made into coins for you to collect as lasting mementoes of London 2012.

The designer of the Football coin

Neil Wolfson of London designed his coin in the hope that it would encapsulate football in a simple image. As the offside rule is a perennial talking point, the image is designed to provoke discussion, which was what he was aiming for. Neil is currently working as a production journalist.

£2.99 for an item of value 50p is bad enough, but the doubling that with delivery charges? Ridiculous.
