Royal Mint ‘Offside Explained’ 50p Coin

We’ve all been there sat with our girls watching the match…’Whats offside mean?’ no more of missing the rest of the game explaining now just flip her this 50p and let her get on with it!!! Football (not soccer) “offside” gets explained in this commemorative coin which was ultimately part of a series of crowd sourced designs ahead of London’s 2012 Olympic Games. All 29 sports are represented by 50p coin with the following design by Neil Wolfson which breaks down the rule in a simplistic (and hopefully understandable) way. The coin is available now via the Royal Mint.
