Here come the usual questions!

1) Have you seen your coin ‘in the wild’ yet?

Working in a bank, I get to see quite a lot of the coins; not just mine, but all 29 designs. My colleagues are always on the look out for them in their tills, and it always makes a great conversation with our customers when one appears in their change!

2) Have you heard what the British team think about it?

No I haven’t heard what anyone from the British team think about it, but I’d love to know what they think of my representation of beach volleyball.

3) What are you looking forward to in 2012?

2012 has been a very busy year for me! I have just finished a 3 year Business degree at the University of Central Lancashire, and I am delighted to report that I gained a First Class with honours. After 3 years of juggling a part time job, looking after my 2 young children and studying towards my degree, I am delighted that the hard work has paid off. I am now looking forward to graduating on the 10th July, and hopefully finding a new job in accountancy or banking.
