There are 8000 engraved rings on the Torch which represents the 8000 torch bearers who transported the original relay Torch across the country.
The Torch is a triangular column. Its three surfaces are significant, as they represent a number of different concepts, including the Olympic motto: faster, higher, stronger; the three Olympic Games held in London in 1908, 1948 and 2012; and London's plan to combine sport, culture and education.
This product marks the first time in history that a 1/2 size replica of an Olympic Torch with precious metal included has been made available for retail to the general public.
