Design by: Robert Evans
Hockey coin designer Robert Evans

In a Royal Mint video interview with the Hockey coin designer Robert Evans (click image above to view), asked what was the inspiration behind your idea?, Robert said: For my hockey design I got in touch with the University of Glamorgan who were good enough to give me two international standard hockey players for the afternoon in a gymnasium. I went along with my camera and took lots of shots of them so I had enough photographs to work with to enable me to get all the information for the detail of the design.
