World's Strangest Olympic Souvenirs

The Souvenir: 50 pence coin.
The Story: On the horizon for strange Olympic memorabilia: the 2012 commemorative coin designed by nine-year-old Florence Jackson from Bristol. Selected from more than 17,000 entries, the coin glorifies noodle-armed screaming pole-vaulters everywhere. The Royal Mint will put the legal tender in circulation later this year.
