To commemorate the Summer Olympic Games which were meant to take place in 2020, Pobjoy Mint is pleased to announce the 2nd release of a new 50pence series produced on behalf of the Government of Gibraltar.
The Games of the XXXII Olympiad were awarded to Tokyo on 7th September 2013 and were planned to take place between July 24th and August 9th, 2020. However, the Olympics were postponed by a year because of the growing spread of coronavirus across the world. The delayed games will now begin on July 23rd 2021.
The Sprinting events consist of three distances – the 400m, the 200m and 100m. The 400m and 100m events have been part of the Games since 1896 with the 200m added in 1900. The design shows two male athletes sprinting for the line.
We have produced five designs for this 2021 dated series of 50p coins showing these events: Cycling; Sprinting; Rowing; Kayak and Equestrian. Each design features the word ‘OLYMPIC’, the chosen discipline and a Union Jack.
It is the first time in the event's history it has been postponed, with more than 11,000 athletes from about 200 countries scheduled to take part.
The event organisers laid down three fundamental concepts for the Games which they believe will transform the world: striving for your personal best (achieving personal best); accepting one another (unity in diversity); and passing on a legacy for the future (connecting to tomorrow).
The coins will be available in Cupro Nickel Diamond Finish presented in a colourful pack and in Proof Sterling Silver presented in a box with a certificate. The obverse of each coin shows the Pobjoy Mint Effigy of H.M. Queen Elizabeth II.
