Olympic Coins

Olympic Coins

Everyone has a favourite sport and regardless of what yours is, there’s a good chance that sport is in the Olympics. If it is, you can bet a national mint has produced a commemorative coin featuring that sport. With Tokyo 2020 fast approaching we’ve decided to put together all of the Olympic Coins we currently have in stock. So whether you’re a coin collector or a sports fan, we encourage you to browse through our stock and see if you can find a coin with your favourite sport.  

Why start an Olympic Coins collection?

The first Olympic Games originated in Ancient Greece over 2,700 years ago, more precisely in Olympia, South-West Greece. The ancient games originally only had 6 sporting events: Running, Discus, Javelin, Long Jump, Boxing, Wrestling and Horse Racing. If the number of sports had remained the same until today, we probably wouldn’t have a lot of items to show on this page.   

Fortunately for coin collectors, the number of sports has increased quite a bit since then, with the Tokyo 2020 games bringing the total number of sports to 33, which should give you even more options for your future Olympic Coin collection. Plus, coins and medals for the Olympics have been in production since 1896, this means you already have plenty of items from which to choose from.

Rare Nagano Skiing Olympics Piedfort Aluminium

One of the oldest mints in the world, the Romanian Mint made patterns for crowns they were going to issue for the Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia, United States and Nagano, Japan. They were never issued and thus only the patterns exist. The mintage was only 125 pieces in each metal and size (i.e. single thickness or piedfort). So they are some of the RAREST Olympic coins around. We bought quite a lot of the mintage, but over the years we have sold out of many of them.
