2011 London Olympics Fencing Circulated Fifty Pence Coin

2011 Olympic Fencing 50p Obverse
2011 Fencing 50p issued by the Royal Mint. This UK Coin was one of twenty-nine Fifty Pence piece designs circulated to celebrate the 2012 Summer Olympics hosted in London. A public competition for the designs saw 30,000 submissions, and one of the chosen designs was this fencing submission from Ruth Summerfield. In an interview with the Royal Mind, Summerfield said that the design was inspired by a friend who played the sport and felt that the interesting and dynamic shapes would be interesting on a coin. The reverse of the 2011 Fencing Fifty Pence piece holds Summerfield's design of two fencers, one striking at another. Above the figures is the 2012 Summer Olympics' Logo and below are the words '50 PENCE'. On the obverse is Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait of Her Majesty the Queen. The 2011 fencing 50ps are struck in cupronickel alloy to standard Fifty Pence piece specifications (weight: 8.00 grams, diameter: 27.30 millimetres). 2,115,500 of these coins entered circulation. Please note that the photograph on this page is a stock image. The coin that would be received on purchase is one that entered circulation and therefore will look like the coins that you find in your change, comparable condition to the coin in the photo. Our price includes free UK shipping.
