£2 Tube Coin

After the success of the Olympic Torch, the british duo Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby designed a £2 coin to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the London tube.

Every detailed was well studied: the coin features a 1967 Victoria line train emerging from a tunnel, a metaphor of the Underground moving, changing from the past to the future, and will go into general circulation in January 2013. This tube has been running in the underground lines for 44 years, making it easier to be recognized by many.

Also the coin’s nickel-brass edge is inspired in the stations along the London Underground line, and the map designed by Harry Beck’s. The coin is inscribed with the New Johnston font, a typeface synonymous with the world’s oldest mass transit system and the millions of commuters who pass through it daily.

Barber Osgerby Studio are leaving their mark in the British history.
