Since 1986. the Royal Mint has issued two pound coins, often with special commemorative themes. For 2008, there is one for the Centenary of the 1908 London Olympic Games. There is also a "definitive" version in addition.

The Fourth Portrait The fourth of Queen Elizabeth II, designed by Ian Rank Broadley, FRBS, FSNAD, whose initials IRB appear under the head, as used on all British coins from 1998. The legend (inscription) reads: ELIZABETH II D G REG FID DEF TWO POUNDS

The design that graces the reverse is by Royal Mint engraver, Thomas T Docherty, who chose as the central feature of his design a running track, an image that is readily associated with the Olympic Games. The anniversary date of 1908 is positioned within the track, with the words LONDON OLYMPIC CENTENARY encircling the design. The incuse edge inscription, THE 4TH OLYMPIAD LONDON, completes the design.
