About Olympic Coins

The triumphs of individuals, teams, and nations make the Olympic Games a highlight for armchair warriors and true sportsmen alike. As a way to celebrate and commemorate the achievements of the participants of the Games, each Olympiad produces its own set of Olympic coins that display the sports unique to that Summer or Winter Games. Designs and sports vary from Olympiad to Olympiad, based upon season and the International Olympic Committee's acceptance or removal of a particular sport from the official roster. These can be of interest to collectors or practitioners of that sport, as in the case of the 1996 Olympic coin featuring mountain biking, the first year for that sport. Finding an Olympic coin set from a particular year is easy if you browse the trusted sellers on eBay. Consider any of the convenient shipping and delivery options, and soon you will own a marvelous piece of Olympic history.
