Description

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 Summer Games and all but four Winter Games in the modern era since 1896. Australia co-hosted the Summer Games in Melbourne in 1956 and hosted 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 by The Perth Mint and is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.

An olympic runner with the inscription FASTER.
