2011 London Olympics Aquatics Circulated Fifty Pence Coin

2011 Aquatics Olympics 50p Reverse
Aquatics circulated 2011 Fifty Pence piece from The Royal Mint's collection of London Olympics coins. 2012 marked the third time that the city had hosted a modern Olympics games and us Brits did very well, coming third in the medal table behind the US and China. The Royal Mint celebrated the XXX Olympics with a range of commemorative coinage including a very popular 50p collection made up of 29 different designs. These were chosen through a nationwide competition, allowing members of the public to see their artwork on real coinage. Some 30,000 designs were entered, representing different Olympic and Paralympic sports, resulting in fantastically varied styles across the set. The reverse of the Aquatics 50p features a swimming-inspired design by sculptor Jonathan Olliffe from Whitney, Oxfordshire. He also created the reverse for the 2011 Gymnastics 50p and the £2 coin issued to mark the handover to Rio de Janeiro for the 2016 Summer Olympics. The obverse, like all the coins in this series, shows Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait of Her Majesty the Queen. These Aquatics 50ps are struck in cupronickel alloy to standard specifications (weight: 8.00 grams, diameter: 27.30 millimetres). 2,179,000 but most are now out of circulation making them hard to get hold of. Please note that the photograph on this page is a a stock image. You will receive a coin in comparable condition, similar to the coins you find in your change. Our price includes free UK shipping.
