Description

The Rowing 50p coin is part of the Royal Mint’s commemorative series issued to celebrate the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. This Olympic 50p Coin series, featuring 29 different designs each representing an Olympic sport, was created to honor the Games hosted in London.

The Rowing 50p specifically pays tribute to the sport of rowing, a discipline known for its combination of strength, endurance, and teamwork.

Design and Features

The design on the Rowing 50p coin depicts a rower in action, with an emphasis on the dynamic and physically demanding nature of the sport. The image captures the essence of rowing, highlighting the athleticism and coordination required to compete at the highest levels. This design aims to celebrate rowing’s significance within the Olympic Games and its tradition of excellence and competition.

The designer of the Rowing 50p coin was David Podmore, who was selected through a public competition that invited individuals from across the United Kingdom to submit their designs. This inclusive approach allowed for a wide range of artistic interpretations, ultimately resulting in a collection that celebrated the Olympic spirit through the diverse and creative visions of its citizens.

Specifications

  • Denomination: 50 pence
  • Alloy: Cupro-nickel (75% copper, 25% nickel)
  • Weight: 8 grams
  • Diameter: 27.3 mm
  • Shape: Heptagonal (7-sided)

Collectibility and Significance

The Rowing 50p coin, like the others in the London 2012 series, has become a sought-after collectible, especially among those with an interest in Olympic memorabilia, sports-themed numismatics, or rowing enthusiasts. The series was praised for its role in engaging the public with the Olympic spirit, and many people collected these coins as a way to feel connected to the Games.

The collectible value of the coin can vary based on factors such as its condition (circulated vs. uncirculated), rarity, and demand among collectors. While its face value is 50 pence, certain coins from the series, depending on their popularity or the number minted, may be considered more valuable in the collectors’ market.
