Feted for their incredible achievements that make us all proud, the athletes of Team GB finally get to chase their dreams in Tokyo while we cheer them on back home. As the pageantry of the opening ceremony subsides and the events get underway, the tension is palpable. Muscles twitch, adrenaline courses and minds sharpen as with Olympic gold comes sporting glory.

With the world’s gaze fixed firmly on Japan, The Royal Mint, the maker of the Olympic medals for London 2012, is delighted to offer this special Olympic gold £2 coin, struck by us in 2008 to commemorate the handover from Beijing to London.

Show your support and commemorate sporting history as it’s made, with a lasting memento of the handover from Beijing to London.
