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.

Romania Ice Dance Copper

This is a RARE Piedfort Pattern made by the Romania Mint for the Winter Olympics held in Nagano Japan in 1998. It depicts a couple Ice Dancing on one side and the arms of Romania on the other side. This is a Piedfort, that means that it is double the normal thickness. So on a crown that is quite a huge piece. The total mintage is just 125, quite a Rare piece and no doubt very collectable in Japan. It was issued in 1989 and is a very unusual coin, in that the denomination is on the edge, so as not to spoil the design.
