The official UK coins to celebrate the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games have been designed by two students.
Architectural student Saiman Miah from Birmingham and graphic and media design graduate Pippa Sanderson from Malvern, Worcestershire, have created two £5 coins which will be permanent mementos of London 2012.
Their designs were selected following a Royal Mint competition for art and design students attending higher education colleges and universities across the UK.
The coins, which are UK legal tender, will go on sale this month and are expected to be collected by thousands of Games enthusiasts around the world.
The designer of the official Olympic coin, Saiman Miah, is currently studying for his Masters degree at the Birmingham School of Architecture.
Pippa Sanderson, who recently graduated with a First Class Honours Degree in Graphic and Media Design at Hereford College of Arts, designed the London 2012 Paralympic Coin.
