In a Royal Mint video interview with the Handball coin designer Natasha Ratcliffe, asked why did you choose handball for your design?, Natasha said: Iíve never played handball but when Iíve watched it people are jumping around and their arms are always high with so much action, they are always off the ground and it reminded me of sponge ball games when you are a kid, hurling balls at each other, very dynamic and I wanted to get that on the coin.
Handball gained permanent status as an Olympic sport in 1972. 7 people on each team play two 30 minute halves. Players can take 3 steps and then need to dribble the ball, goals are scored by throwing the ball into the net from outside a 6 meter zone.
