About This Design
The reverse for this London Underground ‘Train’ coin was designed by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby. Known for their award-winning work for Flos, Swarovski and many more, the duo also designed the London 2012 Olympic Torch. The coin shows a 1967 Victoria line train and uses texture and perspectives to reflect the light and create a sense of movement. It also carries an unusual edge pattern inspired by Harry Beck’s iconic Tube map.
