2011 London Olympics Wrestling Circulated Fifty Pence Coin

2011 Olympic Wrestling 50p Reverse
from
£11.00
2011 Wrestling Fifty Pence piece. This UK coin was released by The Royal Mint to celebrate the then upcoming 2012 Summer Olympics, and the design was chosen through a public competition held in 2009. Out of 30,000 public submissions, Roderick Enriquez submitted one of the twenty-nine chosen designs. Enriquez, a Filipino-British national, chose to design a wrestling coin to represent both the ancient and modern aspects of the sport. The reverse of the coin holds Enriquez's wrestling design: two wrestlers, one throwing the other, in a stadium. The details are ambiguous in terms of ancient or modern. Above the wrestlers at the top centre of the coin is the 2012 Summer Olympics logo, and below are the worlds '50 Pence'. Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait of Her Majesty the Queen is on the obverse. The 2011 Wrestling 50ps are minted in cupronickel alloy to standard Fifty Pence piece specifications (weight: 8.00 grams, diameter: 27.30 millimetres). 1,129,500 of these coins entered circulation. The photograph for this listing is a stock image. The coin you will receive will be in comparable condition and as it was circulated will be much like the coins you find in your change.
