Description

The reverse of the ‘Ice’ coin is split horizontally and features two of the most popular sports, Bobsleigh and Figure Skating. A lone Olympian is seen traveling at speed down a track on a Skeleton and five Figure Skaters are seen skating in unison.

The sports have been segregated by using different techniques on each sport. The upper sport is shown with the athletes frosted in relief with a polished background.  The sport shown in the lower half of the coin utilises a reverse frosting technique which has the athletes polished in relief which the background frosted which gives the impression of the snow or ice upon which the sport takes place.  

The obverse features the Fijian Coat of Arms a heraldic design consisting of a shield with the Cross of St. George, Fijian Warriors, a canoe and a Lion on a stunning proof background.
