Romania, 1996 Olympic Tennis Aluminium Piedfort
At this time of year tennis seems to be on many British people’s minds, what with Wimbledon and all. So I found a group of Rare patterns issued for tennis for the 1996 Olympics held in Atlanta, Georgia in the United States. They only made 125 pieces in each metal and thickness. So these are some of the rarest Olympic coins you will ever see. The type on offer here is the Aluminium Piedfort. Each coin is full crownsized and struck in proof condition. They are struck at one of the oldest mints in the world in Romania, which has been in business for centuries and the quality is outstanding. An outstanding feature is the denomination, 100 Lei, is on the edge, so as not to detract from the design of the coin.
