Wheelchair Rugby 50p coin design
The Wheelchair Rugby 50p coin, designed by Natasha Ratcliffe, comes in a fun and vibrant pack, making the London 2012 Sports Collection.
In January 2009 the Royal Mint launched its biggest ever competition, inviting the British public to design a series of new 50p coins. Thousands of excellent designs were received from all over the UK, featuring all 29 sports of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The best designs were selected and now they’ve been made into coins for you to collect as lasting mementoes of London 2012.
