The obverse has the portrait of the Queen by Ian Rank-Broadley. The reverse omits the denomination ‘TWO POUNDS’ so this has been incorporated into the obverse along with the year which are both shown at the bottom.

The reverse by Jonathan Olliffe shows a baton being handed over with the Union flag, the flag of Brazil and a running track below and the London 2012 logo above. The very successful London 2012 Olympics finished with the ceremony to mark the handover to Rio de Janeiro for 2016.

The edge reads: I CALL UPON THE YOUTH OF THE WORLD

2012 Rio Handover
