29 Weeks of British Olympic and Paralympic sports – Week 27: Wheelchair Rugby

The Wheelchair Rugby 50p was designed by Natasha Radcliffe.Wheelchair Rugby
We asked Natasha three searching questions about her design!

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

Despite much eager eyed searching, most of the 50p’s I see are the normal ones. I have found around a dozen of the different Olympic designs, but not my own as yet, though a good friend from Birmingham found one of wheelchair rugby, and hand delivered it to me in the South West, so it got a good old road trip before I blue tacked it to my wall.

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

Hopefully they will come across it and be happy, maybe a silver coin for luck this year!

3) What are you looking forward to in 2012?

A good old cocktail of hard work, sunny days and realised dreams I hope. Looking forward to the adventure.
