Design by: Pravin Dewdhory
Shooting coin designer Pravin Dewdhory

In a Royal Mint video interview with the Shooting coin designer Pravin Dewdhory (click image above to view), asked why did you choose Shooting for your design?, Pravin said: I decided to choose shooting because I had an idea to take the shattered clay pigeon and I wanted to make a play on taking the 2012 logo and the geometric shapes that come from it and create the segments from the explosion that links back to the branding of 2012 so that was my connection, the idea that the clay pigeon would work with the 2012 branding and how that sport fitted with the idea I had.
