More info

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.

Struck to Silver Proof 925 and plated with fine gold which is a much higher standard than the coins in the folder in Bi-metal. Authorised by the London Organising Committee for the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) and the International Olympic Committee (IOC)
