The fifth gold coin in the Sydney 2000 series.

Sydney played host in September and October 2000 to the world's biggest sporting spectaculars, the Olympic Games, declared "the best Games ever" by IOC President Juan Antonio Samaranch.

It's hardly surprising then that collectibles of the Sydney 2000 games were in extremely strong demand, many discerning collectors wanted an heirloom that was solid and officially-produced to pass onto future generations.

The Sydney 2000 Olympic coins have been the most enduring collectibles of the entire games, for these four reasons:

Produced by the Australian government;

Limited edition;

Superb quality & presentation;

Made from solid, pure Australian gold and silver.

Just 30,000 examples of each gold coin were struck, the design theme of this particular gold coin was Preparation.
