Carlin, part of the British Swimming National Centre squad at the Sports Training Village, was invited by The Royal Mint to mark the 100-day countdown by striking an official Team GB gold-edition 50p coin.
It comes a week after the Commonwealth champion was officially selected by Team GB for this summer’s Games in Brazil, along with team-mates Siobhan-Marie O’Connor, Chris Walker-Hebborn and Andrew Willis – the announcement took place at their home pool at the University of Bath.
Carlin said: “I am honoured to have been invited to The Royal Mint to strike the official Team GB gold edition 50p coin. I am delighted to have qualified for the Olympic Games and am looking forward to competing with the rest of Team GB athletes in Rio this summer.”
Anne Jessopp, The Royal Mint’s Director of Commemorative Coin, said: “We are thrilled to be able to show our support for Team GB in this way, and celebrate the talent, dedication and Olympian spirit of the athletes chosen to represent us in what we hope will be yet another piece of Great British sporting history for the team.”
