The Christmas pins show Wenlock slam-dunking a present into a stocking (similar to the US version), Mandeville carrying a snowball and a printed version of the snowman pin released last year.
The pin has a blue background with a stylised portion of the Thames and a basketball and football to form the word 'London' along with a London skyline which helps form a '2012'. The paralympic logo is displayed on a gold background.
These pins use many of the themes we've seen already such as the crown and weather however the Stonehenge and Downing Street pins are a welcome addition to the range.
As for all the other US retail pins, these are only for sale and distribution within the USA.
The first is a set of 2 pins available now to mark the Christmas period or Holiday season as its termed. The 2 pins show Wenlock slam-dunking a present into a basketball hoop (the same image used in LOCOG emails last Christmas) and another version of the snowflake design used in two separate pins in the UK last Christmas
of a Guard, Big Ben and a bus. They appear to be printed rather than enamel and no word on manufacturer.
Wenlock is shown trying the following sports... Volleyball, Beach Volleyball, BMX, Eventing, Mountain Biking, Modern Pentathlon (best pin yet?) Cycling, Running, Taekwondo, Trampoline and Triathlon.
Issue size is 3,000 and the price is £6.50. It will be available in the next day or two.
Once again these pins are made for the US market only and cannot be sold outside the USA.
