About This Design 

To commemorate both the successful bid and the official handover from Beijing to London, The Royal Mint struck a commemorative £2 coin which featured the iconic Olympic Flag and the London 2012 logo on its reverse. Two outstretched hands complete the symbolic status of the coin and lines reminiscent of a running track surround the central design.

    Could have been a bit cleaner other than that this coin is value for money
