Description

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

The Volleyball fifty pence coin specifically pays tribute to the sport of volleyball, a game known for its teamwork, agility, and the spectacular athleticism required to compete at the highest levels.

Design and Features

The design on the Volleyball 50p coin depicts two athletes in action, capturing the dynamic and high-energy nature of volleyball. The imagery aims to convey the athleticism and teamwork essential to the sport, highlighting its significance within the Olympic Games. The design celebrates volleyball’s global popularity and its role in fostering cooperation and physical excellence.

The designer of the Volleyball 50p coin was Daniela Boothman, 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 Volleyball 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 volleyball 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.

Bank sales representative and mother-of-two Daniela Boothman, of Leyland, was on maternity leave with her second child when she read about the competition in a magazine.

She studied graphic design at school but went down a different career path so she decided to spend her time at home by brushing up on her artistic skills.

“I feel so proud and honoured to have won such an amazing, once in a lifetime prize,” she says.

“I know that my two young children will be very excited to tell their friends that their mummy created the design on a ‘real’ coin.

“It’s really exciting, I’ll be able to see it at work every day.”
