Design by: Davey Podmore
Rowing coin designer Davey Podmore

In a Royal Mint video interview with the Rowing coin designer Davey Podmore (click image above to view), asked what was the inspiration behind the design?, Davey said: I wanted to get over the impression of that moment in time and the passion that the sport people put into the event, the whole ‘life has been working to this one moment, this one race’ I wanted to get a feeling for that passion and the fact that as they are rowing through the water that they are leaving an imprint in their wake so I researched the boat design and the rowers but I also wanted to include words to give a story so I added the typography as well.
