Olympic Gold Coins

Olympic gold coin commemoratives are highly desired for their metal purity and their memorialization of various years of the Olympic games. U.S. Olympic gold coins are struck from .900 fine gold (90% pure gold), as are many Canadian Olympic gold coins. In other cases, these coins may even be 50% pure, rendering them a more affordable gold coin alternative to official government bullion coins.

Typically, Olympic Games coins honor the games by depicting a sport featured in the Olympics and depicting the Olympic mascot. While not all sports are included in the games, athletics, cycling, fencing, and swimming have consistently been included among them. The upcoming Olympics include a diversity of sports which include a number of martial arts, equestrian sports, and watersports. For the 2008 Summer Olympics, softball and baseball were removed and will continue to be excluded from the 2016 games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Olympic mascots differ based on the host country. Typically, mascots are something native or relevant to the host country. For example, the 2000 Summer Olympics which were held in Australia had mascots Syd, Olly, and Millie, a platypus, echidna, and kookaburra, all native animals to Australia. The 2010 Winter Olympics held in Vancouver used an Inukshuk as its mascot, a human-shaped totem constructed by laying stones on top of one another that is a tradition of the country’s native Inuit peoples. The upcoming 2016 Olympic Games’ mascots names are still being decided, but may be included as part of a new Olympic coin design.

As an international event that draws the attention of hundreds of millions of people, the Olympic Games are an incredibly popular subject for commemorative coins. These pieces are minted every time the Olympics are about to be held, and oftentimes are struck by governments that aren’t even hosting the games. The host country, however, almost always releases a series of multiple Olympic gold coins to celebrate the variety of athletic events held at the games. Some of these exquisite Olympic commemorative gold coins are also available in proof sets, as they are made expressly as legal tender collectibles. Be sure to make your Olympic Gold coin purchases at Gainesville Coins!
