Show Your Support for Team GB
First staged 125 years ago, the modern Olympic Games are a celebration of shared humanity and one of the world’s greatest sporting events. After a prolonged wait, the Games in Tokyo is finally set to go ahead in 2021. For the athletes of Team GB, the chance to compete is the culmination of long-held dreams and – undeterred by the delay – they’ve maintained peak condition for their chance to make sporting history.
At the London 2012 Olympic Games, winners were presented with medals struck by The Royal Mint, whilst a series of themed 50p coins captured the spirit of the occasion along with the public’s imagination. Showcasing the diverse mix of sports that make up the modern Olympic Games, they have since become highly collectable and serve as a reminder of a glorious summer of British sporting success right here on home soil. Olympic fever swept the country again four years later in Rio when Team GB surged to their best performance away from home, winning 67 medals in all. This extraordinary achievement united the nation in pride and, these memories were captured by an official Team GB 2016 UK Coin struck by The Royal Mint.
These sporting designs have captured the imagination of customers all over Great Britain and Northern Ireland and now we’re ready to unveil the official UK 50p coin for this year’s summer games. Featuring a reverse design by David Knapton, a senior designer at The Royal mint, the coin pays tribute to the dedication of Team GB’s Olympians whilst celebrating the mix of traditional and more youthful sports that make up this year’s Olympic Games.
This is the perfect way to support Team GB in their bid for sporting glory and provides a lasting memento of a glorious summer of sport when medals were won, records broken and British athletes competed with the best in the world. Add the 2021 coin to your collection or give as a gift to any aspiring Olympians who dream of emulating their sporting heroes.
