Commemorate the 2000 Olympics in Sydney with this 3-Coin Gold and Silver Proof Set. The set includes the beautiful Proof Gold $100 Shot Putter Preparation Coin containing .32 oz of .9999 fine gold. Two $5 Proof Silver Coins struck from 0.925 fine silver are also included.
Each coin in this set was originally part of a different 2000 Olympics collection featuring the designs of Stuart Devlin. The Shot Putter Preparation Coin was the 4th installment in the 8-Coin $100 Gold Proof Olympics Collection. The reverse shows an Olympic shot putter teaching a group of children about his sport with the motto “PREPARATION” inscribed below. The other two coins in this box set are the 7th and 8th coins in the Sydney 16-Coin $5 Proof Silver Olympics Series. The reverse of the “Reaching the World - Commerce” coin features interlocking rings representing various industries and the “Emu and Wattle” coin features a family of Australia's largest bird. The obverse of all three coins bears the Ian Rank-Broadley’s profile of Queen Elizabeth II.
This 2000 Sydney Olympic Gold and Silver Proof Set was a joint venture between the Royal Australian Mint in Canberra and the Perth Mint. Each coin is individually encapsulated and all are housed in a green presentation case. Mintage was limited to 10,000 sets, making this a rare addition to any collection.
