To commemorate the importance of the events in 2012 the Past Overseers’ Society commissioned a new piece of silver for that one year.  Designed by Peter Darvall and made by Mary Ann Simmons, the Shard records  the Diamond Jubilee of the Queen, Queen Elizabeth II, the Olympic and Paralympic Games of August 2012 and other international events of the year.

The Queens Jubilee is remembered with wording and the engraving of the two coins, one from 1952 and the other 2012.

The second side is dedicated to the Olympic and Paralympic Games listing the number of medals won by Team GB competitors.

The third side records the traumatic events in the Middle Eastern countries and the hopes of the positive outcome of the Arab Spring.
