london 2012 olympics cycling 50p coin

I spotted this London 2012 cycling commemorative coin in WH Smiths the other day. It was designed by Theo Crutchley-Mack, a 16yr old kid who looks like he still gets 50p pocket money a week, there’s a video of him talking about his design on the Royal Mint website. And how much is this 50p coin worth? £2.99 of course because it is…

– Manufactured to a higher standard on a slower press
– Packed carefully into a protective capsule
– Presented on a colourful London 2012 design card
– Placed into a polybag for extra protection

And don’t forget that…

These 50ps are super shiny and if you look after them they will stay shiny!
