2011 London Olympics Judo Circulated Fifty Pence Coin

2011 Olympic Judo 50p Reverse
2011 Judo 50p minted and circulated in celebration of the 2012 Summer Olympics hosted in London. The Royal Mint hosted a competition for the public to submit their designs for the commemorative collection, and out of 30,000 submissions 29 were selected. David Cornell, a painter and sculptor, submitted the Judo design. Cornell was familiar with the sport of judo having competed when he was younger, and so chose this sport as the subject of his design. He decided to depict the move that injured his shoulder and caused him to have to stop competing. On the reverse of this 2011 Judo Fifty Pence piece is Cornell's design of two judo athletes with one throwing the other. Above the figures is the 2012 Summer Olympics' Logo and below are the worlds '50 PENCE'. On the obverse is Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait of Her Majesty the Queen. The 2011 Judo Fifty Pence Pieces are struck in cupronickel alloy to standard Fifty Pence piece specifications (weight: 8.00 grams, diameter: 27.30 millimetres). 1,161,500 of these coins entered circulation. Please note that the photograph on this page is a stock image. The coin you will receive 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.
