The obverse has the portrait of the Queen by Ian Rank-Broadley, but with the legend (the writing around the edge) incorporating the denomination in words ‘TWO POUNDS’ as this wasn’t included on the reverse.
The reverse shows a flag being handed over from a ‘Beijing’ hand to a ‘London’ hand! Under the hands is the London 2012 logo.
The edge reads: I CALL UPON THE YOUTH OF THE WORLD
