Commonwealth Games

This sporting event which was to become known as the Commonwealth Games was once a mere dream of a certain Mr. Ashley Cooper, who wrote to "The Times" in 1892 and suggested that a regular sports meeting would increase 'the goodwill and understanding between the nations of the Empire'. It wasn't until 1930 that the first of planned regular meetings between members of the then British Empire really began.

The obverse of the coins features the effigy of HM Queen Elizabeth II by Raphael Maklouf. The reverse features Michael Rizzello's design of a competitor in action on the long jump, together with the symbol of the Commonwealth Games - stylized Roman numerals of the number 3, since it was the thirteenth Commonwealth Games.
