About the design

At the Closing Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games, the world watched as London handed over the mantle to the next Host City, Rio de Janeiro.

This, the final coin in The Royal Mint’s London 2012 Coin programme, celebrated the milestone with an evocative design by Jonathan Olliffe.
