Offside Coin - London 2012
The Royal Mint has issued a 50p coin as part of a series of coins commemorating the 2012 London Olympics, that explains the offsides rule. The obverse of the coin features the Queen's profile, while the reverse shows half the soccer pitch and offense players (triangles) in the on-side and off-side position as compared to the defender (square). Actually a great idea, this coin should be in the pocket of every parent whose child plays soccer!
