According to The Royal Mint, these coins are all but being taken out of circulation by the general public as they hoard them as free souvenirs of the games. I’m guilty!

So congratulations to Florence Jackson of Bristol who won the Blue Peter competition to design the special edition Olympic coin for athletics. This is one coin that won’t be getting spent… yet. Her London 2012 50p Sports Collection Athletics coin is available to purchase from here.
