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.

Romanian Basketball Copper Piedfort

This pattern Crown was issued by the Romanian Mint for the Olympics held in Atlanta, Georgia in 1996. What is most fascinating is the mintage, Just 125 pieces were ever made. This makes it one of the lowest mintage and scarcest Olympic coins ever made. It honours the Olympic sport of basketball. It shows two players jumping for a ball. The other side has the arms of Romania and the date 1996. This piece is struck in copper, but it is double the normal thickness or a piedfort. A piedfort crown is a rather large coin and it is in proof condition. We bought a large proportion of the mintage and over the years they are starting to run out. Especially now that we are getting interest from the former Soviet countries. The people have money and want to collect their own coinage. Remember there were only 125 pieces ever made in copper piedfort.

Romanian Ice Hockey Copper Piedfort

Recently we have been getting a number of enquirers from Romania and several other former Eastern European countries for the Romanian pattern Crowns that we had so many of. Strange, when we went to check our inventory we discovered that the large group we had was almost sold out. After all they are very low mintage, they are Olympic commemoratives and they are priced cheaply. We did find one piece that we had in a smallish quantity and that we can offer to you at a reasonable price. It is Pattern Crown struck for the Ice Hockey event held in Nagano, Japan. It was struck in copper proof, double thickness or Piedfort and with a mintage of just 125 pieces. Get them before the Romanian dealers buy them all up.
