London 2012 Coin Design Competition


I knew of this competition only a week or so ago, after a full page advert in the newspaper with a blank 50p.

I was immediately excited about the possibility of having a design made into an actual coin, and before visiting the site sketched out some ideas.

From those sketches I created a quick PhotoShop mock-up, using the Olympic rings as a repeating background, and putting a cyclist as the main focus point with some medals to the left.


It was only a quick concept, but I knew the 24th April deadline meant I wouldn’t be able to finish in time.

After I visited the Royal Mint Competition website it turns out they weren’t looking for a design of cycling anyway, so I thought I would create a post of my Moleskine sketches and rough mock-up here instead.
