In a Royal Mint video interview with the Wheelchair Rugby coin designer Natasha Ratcliffe, asked why did you choose Wheelchair Rugby for your design?, Natasha said: I was lucky enough to get two coins made in production, wheelchair rugby and also handball but I chose wheelchair rugby really because when I started looking through the sports I came across all the pictures of wheelchair rugby and it looked so full of energy, you’ve got wheelchairs crashing into one another and people falling out and there’s all the dented wheel covers and people always have their hands strapped up its just quite organic and raw and I really like that, I thought it was great.
