The Royal Mint is counting down the years to the London 2012 Olympic Games with four commemorative £5 coins.
BRILLIANT UNCIRCULATED QUALITY
Dated 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012, each Countdown coin is struck from cupro-nickel to brilliant uncirculated quality.
UNITED KINGDOM LEGAL TENDER
Each coin is issued as legal tender of the United Kingdom with the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II represented on the obverse.
COMPLEMENTARY REVERSE DESIGN
Created by Claire Aldridge, the four reverse designs complement one another beautifully, each featuring a border symbolising a bird’s eye view of the new Olympic stadium, a countdown ‘clock’ and the London 2012 logo. The 2011 coin features a representation of the sport of cycling.
PERTH MINT TO STOCK 2012 COINS
The Perth Mint is committed to acquiring stocks of 2012 coins on behalf of Australian collectors.
