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.
A Collector Album is also available with slots to house each of the 29 coins – a brilliant way to build your very own memento of this once-in-a-lifetime sporting occasion.
