Description of obverse and reverse Designer describes the reverse: “With the coin being circular, I played around with circles found in the Games, and decided on a spokes wheel for maneuverability, a target for accuracy and stopwatch for speed. I split the design into these elements and added the face of Big Ben to represent London”.
