In a Royal Mint video interview with the Boccia coin designer Justin Chung, asked what was the inspiration behind your idea?, Justin said: My inspiration came from watching some films of the games on YouTube and then to observe the participants, the court and audience and I was really interested in the expressions on the athletes face, you could see by their twisted face and their body language we can see how hard they try to win and the spirit is what I really wanted to capture on my coin design.
