Olympic 50p's

London 2012 Olympic 50p Coins 

Have you looked at a 50p recently? (if you're in the UK, or work in a money exchange?) There's a collection of 29 designs celebrating different sports from archery to high jump and sailing to commemorate the London 2012 Olympics which start in less than a years time! These 2 turned up in my purse this week- I love the archery one of a hand pulling back an arrow (top left) and I think the other one is Beach Volleyball! What's really cool is they were all designed by the real public and it's the first time the Royal Mint (in it's 1,100 year history) has released a set of coins designed by the members of the British public!
