Description of obverse and reverse Obverse: the current portrait of the Queen by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS, and the denomination of ?10. Reverse: in his design, renowned Royal Academician, Christopher Le Brun (RA) has portrayed Pegasus with a magnificent dynamism; as his wings are spread and he paws the air there is perfect balance in his form – the ultimate symbol of controlled strength. Pegasus embodies a powerful expression of overcoming obstacles, of realising potential, and of achieving the impossible. Though the winged horse has divine origins through mythology he has come to signify the highest human values: art, determination and realisation of potential. Here he stands proud and poised, the ideal representation of great human achievement and also, of the Olympic spirit.
A brief annotation The Royal Mint is delighted to issue the first ever UK 5oz coin to celebrate the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Pegasus, the Winged Horse. Pegasus, the mighty winged horse, is the perfect embodiment of the Olympic ideal – Faster, Higher, Stronger. Born from the blood of the feared Medusa, Pegasus took flight to Mount Parnassus where, commanded by Neptune he struck his hoof on the mountain, creating a spring.
