From the awe inspiring opening ceremony to the sheer excitement of the competition, the London 2012 Olympic Games will feature thousands of athletes, 26 sports and 205 participating countries.
Australia has been represented at every Olympic Games and all but four Olympic Winter Games in the modern era since 1896. Australia hosted the Olympic Games in Melbourne in 1956 and the incredibly successful Games of Sydney 2000.
Originally, the ancient Olympic Games were held in Olympia, Greece, from the 8th century BC to the 5th century AD. The modern Games held under the auspices of the International Olympic Committee were first hosted in Athens in 1896. These Games brought together 14 nations and 241 athletes who competed in 43 events.
As the Olympic torch is lit, so will it ignite the hopes of all Australians, to hear again, the famous words uttered by Norman May, “Gold! Gold to Australia! Gold!”
This stunning five-coin set is struck from aluminium bronze, and designed to inspire. The reverse designs comprise:
All the coins carry the Australian Olympic Team official logo and the inscription 2012 AUSTRALIAN OLYMPIC TEAM.
Issued as Australian legal tender, each aluminium bronze coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination
Each coin is housed in an illustrated presentation card and is displayed in a $1 coin album with a specially designed souvenir cover.
