1/7: New Retail Pins

London 2012 released some new retail pins last week across a number of themes.

The first was a set of 6 sporting equipment pins. These combined items from the sports in gold along with the London 2012 logo.

Pin 1100
Pin 1103

The sports depicted in the set are weightlifting, sailing, tennis, hockey, football and basketball. Each pin is limited to 10,000 pieces and they are pins 1098 - 1103. 

The next set are new logo pins, this time in a pewter effect seen in some pictogram and Team GB pins. There are 3 pin sin the set in small, medium and large sizes. Again each is limited to 10,000 pieces.

Pin 1141

Next there are two pin which depict more iconic London imagery - a policeman at 10 Downing Street and a telephone box. 

Pin 0647 
Pin 0649
Once again both are limited to 10,000 pieces. We've seen a number of telephone pins already, but personally I think this one is the best so far. The combination of image and Union Flag logo make this, in my opinion, one of the best 'icon' themed pins.

The final pin released follows on from the LGBT Diversity pins issued in 2010. It's the same design of Rainbow flag and logo, however this time the Union Flag logo has been used.

Pin 1074

I do not have details on issue size for this pin at present.

All of these pins should be available immediately.
