Olympic coins are one of the most popular types of United States commemorative coins available.
Minted over several years since 1983, Olympic coins cover not just the many Olympic Games held since but also many of the individual Olympic sporting events, like:
- Track & Field
- & Many Others…
Olympic coins have been made as:
- Silver Dollars
- $5 Gold Coins
- $10 Gold Coins
Be sure to check out your local coin dealer or online for Olympic coins! Prices start at under $20 for some Olympic coins. But depending on the year, denomination, and sporting event featured on the coin prices can soar into the hundreds of dollars.
My love for coins began when I was 11 years old. I primarily collect and study U.S. coins produced during the 20th century. I'm a member of the American Numismatic Association (ANA) and the Numismatic Literary Guild (NLG) and have won multiple awards from the NLG for my work as a coin journalist. I'm also the editor at CDN Publishing (a trusted source for the price of U.S. rare coins), editor at the Florida United Numismatists Club (FUN Topics magazine), and author of Images of America: The United States Mint in Philadelphia (a book that explores the colorful history of the Philadelphia Mint). I've contributed hundreds of articles for various coin publications including COINage, The Numismatist, Numismatic News, Coin Dealer Newsletter, Coin Values, and CoinWeek. I've also authored nearly 1,000 articles here at The Fun Times Guide to Coins — and I welcome your coin questions in the comments below!
