Buy a 2011 London Olympics Athletics Circulated Fifty Pence Coin

Olympic Athletics 2011 circulated Fifty Pence piece. This UK coin was one of 29 in a collection released by the Royal Mint to celebrate the 2012 Summer Olympics hosted in London. The designs for this collection were selected from 30,000 designs submitted by the public as part of a competition – the design for the the athletics coin is slightly different however, as it was chosen as part of a Blue Peter competition. The 2011 Athletics 50p, also known as the 'High Jump 50p', was chosen from 17,000 entries from children to the Blue Peter competition. Nine-year-old Florence Jackson won the competition and is the first ever child to have designed a UK coin from The Royal Mint. The reverse of the 2011 Athletics 50p displays Jackson's design of a high jumper jumping over a horizontal bar, the 2012 Summer Olympics logo above and '50 PENCE' below. The obverse shows Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait of Her Majesty the Queen. The 2011 Athletics 50p's are struck in cupronickel alloy to standard Fifty Pence piece specifications (weight: 8.00 grams, diameter: 27.30 millimetres). 2,224,000 of these coins entered circulation.  Please note that the photograph on this page is a stock image. The coin that you will received on purchase is one that entered circulation and therefore will look similar to the coins that you find in your change, comparable condition to the coin in the photo. Our price includes free UK shipping.
