Jonathan Wren from Buckinghamshire with his winning design
A design by a Buckinghamshire animator, which honours the London 2012 Olympics will appear on 50p coins.
Jonathan Wren from Chalfont St Peter beat 27,000 people in a competition held by the Royal Mint.
Like every UK coin in use, his design, which depicts goalball had to obtain final approval from the Treasury and The Queen.
His design makes up one of 29 Olympic sporting events, which will appear on 50p coins in circulation in November.
Designed by members of the public, the coins aim to be kept as lasting mementos of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Jonathan said: "I'm extremely delighted and honoured to have a design that the Royal Mint have chosen to present in the form of a 50 pence coin and connected to such a major event.

"My children will be able to appreciate it in years to come. It hasn't quite sunk in yet," he said.
Royal Mint director of commemorative coin, Dave Knight said:
"Every one of the winners is making history.
"Their coins will become treasured mementos of the biggest sporting event to happen on UK shores for over half a century and we hope will encourage a new generation of collectors."
