London 2012 £5 coin designs shown


Two £5 coins made to mark London 2012 have been unveiled.

The coin designed by Saiman Miah, a masters student at Birmingham School of Architecture, depicts a sweep of the London skyline and marks the Olympics.

Hereford College of Arts graduate Pippa Sanderson, of Malvern, Worcestershire, designed a Paralympics coin which shows a stopwatch, a target and a wheel.

The commemorative coins are being produced by the Royal Mint after the pair won a design contest for students.
