Superb quality, one of just 250 framed coin sets released.

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:

  1. Produced by the Australian government;

  2. Limited edition;

  3. Superb quality & presentation;

  4. Made from solid, pure Australian gold and silver.

During the Sydney 2000 Summer Olympic Games, the Perth Mint commissioned the production of a series of limited-edition framed art pieces that celebrated each of the coins in the Sydney 2000 Olympic coin program.

Each art piece incorporates a silver coin from the exclusive Sydney 2000 Olympic Coin Collection, and features superb photography coupled with an incredible standard of design. These framed art pieces were marketed outside the traditional numismatic market to the general public, and were intended as personal mementos or corporate gifts.

Each art piece was individually numbered - no more than 250 of each silver art piece was made. The majority had sold out completely before the games had even ended, all are now incredibly hard to come by.

A signed Certificate of Authenticity is incorporated in every piece. To protect further the authenticity of these exclusive collectables, advanced DNA identification technology was somehow used to verify them as authorized Olympic memorabilia!

At the time these quality limited edition art pieces were released, they were described by the Perth Mint as being "...the perfect embodiment of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games — and the ultimate memento of a truly historic event."

Technical Specifications

The dimensions of these limited edition art pieces are 975mm high x 685mm wide.

The background colours in the printed image feature a metallic ink finish, the paper used for the print image as well as the mount boards are museum quality and acid-free.

In accordance with art gallery archival and memorabilia standards, all artwork is clipped to the mount, not glued.

Gold: Dedication (II)

Silver (Culture): Harbour of Life (Water)
