Rare patterns issued for the sport of tennis during the 1996 Olympics held in Atlanta, Georgia in the United States. They only made 125 pieces in each metal and thickness. So these are some of the rarest Olympic coins you will ever see. Each is full crownsized, struck in Proof condition and the mintages are a miniscule 125 pieces! They are struck at one of the oldest mints in the world in Romania, it has been in business for centuries and the quality is outstanding. An outstanding feature is the denomination, 100 Lei, is on the edge, so as not to detract from the design of the coin. Here we present the Copper Piedfort, but this piece is also available in Bi-Metallic Piedfort, Aluminium Piedfort and in Brass Piedfort.

In 2001 the Royal Mint honoured him with a special commemorative £2 piece. Beside the coins struck for circulation, they also made special collectors editions in Proof Sterling Silver and Piedfort or double the regular thickness again in Proof Sterling Silver.

Supplies are limited and they are priced at less than the Royal Mint charges for modern issues today.
