The first ever United Kingdom coin to feature the Olympic Flag and the London 2012 logo, struck in .925 sterling silver to impeccable Proof quality.

More details


69.95 €

The £2 coin appropriately features on its reverse the Olympic Flag and the London 2012 logo. Surrounding the central design are the words 'BEIJING 2008' and 'LONDON 2012' along its outer ring, set against a backdrop of lines reminiscent of an athletics track.

The Olympic Flag has a white background, with five interlaced rings in the centre: blue, yellow, black, green and red. This design is symbolic; it represents the five continents of the world, united by Olympism, while the six colours are those that appear on all the national flags of the world at the present time.
