New 50p coin explains the offside rule

People may soon come across some new 50p coins in their change. One of them includes a diagram that attempts to explain the offside rule in football.

The 29 new coins form a series which features each of the Olympic and Paralympic sports to be contested during London 2012. The football coin was designed by London journalist Neil Wolfson.

Although the designs will be attractive to collectors, all the coins are legal tender so should start to appear in change soon. Around 87 million of these coins will be in circulation.
