2008 London Olympics Beijing Handover £2 Circulated Coin
To commemorate both the successful bid and the official handover from Beijing to London, The Royal Mint struck a commemorative £2 coin which featured the iconic Olympic Flag and the London 2012 logo on its reverse.
Two outstretched hands complete the symbolic status of the coin and lines reminiscent of a running track surround the central design.
The Olympic Flag was passed from the mayor of Beijing to Boris Johnson, the mayor of London, by a short performance which invited the world to London for the 2012 Olympic Games.
