Join a Summer of British Icons

In the United Kingdom there are many people and teams who inspire us – some are from the past, whilst others are making an impact today. This summer, we’re celebrating amazing authors, smart scientists and an extraordinary team with special coins that tell their story. Whether you love reading and writing, discovering and experimenting, or you’re a super sports fan, there’s a British icon for you.

A Summer of British Icons Activity Sheets

Our new activity sheets feature iconic people and include activities such as drawing and colouring, a word search, a Team GB quiz and much more!

Draw Your Icon

Create a coin design for your favourite icon – maybe it's someone famous or just someone that you know who inspires you. Upload your pictures to our gallery and check out other people's heroes.

Who is Your Iconic Match

Take the quiz to find out if you're a budding writer, scientist or sports star and find out who would be your iconic match.
