The Great British Olympic Sports Challenge

How many Olympic 50p coins are there?
The Royal Mint created 29 new 50p designs in 2011 to mark the 2012 London Olympics with a coin design for each Olympic sport.

What is "The Coin Hunter Olympic Sports Challenge"?
Five years have now passed since the end of the London 2012 games. Team GB achieved so much and inspired so many to take up a sport. For most, keeping fit and having fun is the main goal, but there will also be future Olympic gold medallists telling a story of London 2012 inspiration.

The games inspired the coins, but could the coins now help future Olympians across the UK discover a sport they had never thought of trying and maybe find they have a talent for.

We are hoping to see thousands of children (and adults) in the UK try a new sport. Perhaps making the extraordinary leap from a collection of coins to collecting an Olympic medal.

There is no need to register, just take a look through the Olympic sports depicted on the 29 coins designs below and click the "Get Involved" link to find out more about taking part, finding a club or for details of events and tickets.
