In 2012, to commemorate the London Paralympic Games, the Royal Mint released a very Limited IssueBrilliant Uncirculated Paralympic £5 Five Pound Coin.
The reverse designed by Pippa Sanderson is a modern interpretation of some of the key skills we will enjoy watching during the Paralympic Games.
The top left section of the coin features an archery target representing accuracy and the words ‘London 2012‘, while the top right of the design shows spoked wheels representing manoeuvrability. The bottom right section shows Big Ben representing London and the bottom left section of the coin features a stopwatch representing speed and the London 2012 Paralympic emblem.
The obverse design is the stunning portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank Broadley.
