Everyone has a favourite sport and regardless of what yours is, there’s a good chance that sport is in the Olympics. If it is, you can bet a national mint has produced a commemorative coin featuring that sport. With Tokyo 2020 finally here, why not take a moment to browse all the Olympic Coinswe currently have in stock and see if you can find a coin with your favourite sport.
The first Olympic Games originated in Ancient Greece over 2,700 years ago, more precisely in Olympia, South-West Greece. The ancient games originally only had 6 sporting events: Running, Discus, Javelin, Long Jump, Boxing, Wrestling and Horse Racing. If the number of sports had remained the same until today, we probably wouldn’t have a lot of items to show on this page.
Fortunately for coin collectors, the number of sports has increased quite a bit since then, with the Tokyo 2020 games bringing the total number of sports to 33, which should give you even more options for your future Olympic Coin collection. Plus, coins and medals for the Olympics have been in production since 1896, which means you already have plenty of items from which to choose.
Coincraft is a family-run company based in London providing collectors with British Coins, Ancient Coins, World Coins, Pop Culture Coins, Banknotes, and other collectibles and we do not sell anything as an investment.
Our website is updated regularly and our stock is very limited on some items, so visiting more often gives you a better chance of finding the Olympic Coins you're looking for.
